A research, carried out by Gartner, underlines the key role that IoT has reached during this year. Infact, only in 2017, the connected objects were about 8.7 billions.

Moreover, a further important data to be recorded is the exponential growth of interest in the IoT. The increase is 44% in 5 years, if we take into consideration the underlying graph of the growth  in interest from 2012 to today the increase is clear to our eyes.

BlueBerry UHF read Murata micro tag embedded on metal surface

An RFID tag is an electronic component made up of a chip and a small antenna. The tag has a small memory which can contain data and it has the ability to transmit them without the need of power, exploiting the energy that the antenna absorbs when it is illuminated by an RFID reader.
In the case of small-scale goods the problem to be faced is the, extremely limited, space available to apply the tag. Murata, a Japanese company that has gained excellent know-how in the development of multi-layer ceramic substrates, has created a new RFID tag, MAGICSTRAP tag, really tiny, but at the same time robust and resistant, which can be affixed or integrated into objects of small surfaces.
