Hotoprint manufacture printed circuit boards for 40 years. Our product portfolio includes:
single-and double-sided PCBs, multilayer, flex circuits, rigid-flex circuits and special (eg milling adapter / Faceplates)
The manufacturing of printed circuit boards is subject to a delicate process order from which the PCB is exposed to chemical, thermal and mechanical processes.
This significantly complicates the implementation of sensitive RFID chips. For this reason, RFID tags are often applied as a separate component on printed circuit boards. Unfortunately, a unique, tamper-proof identity is not possible with this technique, since the chip can be exchanged.
The Hotoprint GmbH & Co. KG, in co-operation with the Institute of Transport and Automation Technology (ITA) at the Leibniz University of Hannover developed a process that allows the installation of the RFID chip and the required antenna into the base material of the PCB.
With our developement, the protection against piracy is reliable ensured, because the transponder can not be traded away without the destruction of PCB.
A further advantage is, that the circuit board is clearly identifiable for the entire product life.
