The granted patent (Publication Number: US11922249B2) discloses an RFID label and tag with a tear-off line for easy separation. The RFID label includes a substrate, a dipole antenna made of metal foil with specific dimensions, and an IC chip connected to the antenna. The dipole antenna features an IC-chip connecting portion, a loop portion, a meander, and a wider part along the tear-off line direction. The tear-off line extends through the substrate and the dipole antenna, facilitating separation.

Moreover, the RFID label and tag may have a holding substrate on the back surface of the substrate for additional support. This configuration enhances the durability and usability of the RFID label and tag. The tear-off line design allows for efficient separation of the label or tag when needed, making it convenient for various applications where RFID technology is utilized.
