  • Patent number: 11354553
    Abstract: Radiofrequency device with adjustable LC circuit comprising an electrical and/or electronic module. The invention relates to a communication device with a radio-frequency chip, said device comprising—an insulating support layer, —an electrical and/or electronic radiofrequency circuit on said insulating layer, said circuit comprising plates of an adjustable capacitor and/or an antenna spiral with adjustable inductance, —at least one element for adjusting a tuning frequency of the radiofrequency circuit. The device is distinguished in that said plates and/or spiral are included in an electrical and/or electronic chip card module, and in that said adjusting element connects an intermediate point of the spiral so as to decrease the available inductance and/or splits or links the plates so as to adjust the capacitance.

  • Publication number: 20100197245
    Abstract: A method for producing radiofrequency communication devices with or without an operation switch and devices obtained. The invention relates to a method for producing a radiofrequency communication device comprising an electronic component, an antennae circuit associated with the electronic component and a switch on the circuit capable of switching off the antennae circuit; the method being differentiated in that comprises the following steps: —the antennae (22) is made with a portion in the form of a closed circuit (15, 17) in a reception zone of the switch, —an interrupting zone (I) of the antennae circuit is created on the said portion at least by removing matter from the antenna. The invention also relates to the resulting devices.
