In this paper, a meandered triple-band printed dipole antenna is proposed for radio frequency identification (RFID). This meandered tri-band printed dipole antenna is designed to operate at 0.92 GHz, 2.45 GHz and 5.8 GHz with the aid of computer simulation technology (CST) software. In order to achieve triple-band operation, the proposed antenna contains two branch elements, which act as an additional resonator. The designed antenna is fabricated using Taconic RF-35 substrate with a dielectric constant (¿r) of 3.5 and thickness (h) of 0.508 mm. The antenna's parameters for triple-band operation are investigated and discussed. Then, this fabricated antenna is integrated with the UHF microchip to become a passive UHF tag. This tag is tested by measuring the reading distance and it is found that the proposed tag can be used for RFID application.
