  • Publication number: 20190138876
    Abstract: An IC tag is provided that reduces the size of a folded dipole antenna. The IC tag includes an IC chip and an antenna electrically connected with the IC chip. The antenna has a first linear portion, bent portions at both ends of the first linear portion, and second linear portions extending from the bent portions on both ends of the first linear portion, distal ends of the second-straight line portions face each other. Bent space portions are at both sides of space defined by the bent portions on both ends of the first linear portion, the first linear portion, and the second linear portions. A communication enhancer that tunes a resonant frequency to a desired frequency is provided near the distal ends of the second linear portions and provided at least inside or outside of space extending from one bent space portion to the other bent space portion.
