Title RFID tag comprising a battery and an antenna sharing common elements Abstract An RFID tag has a battery structure (31, 50, 60 ) and an antenna structure (31, 32 ) each sharing at least one common element (31) in order to minimise or eliminate the disadvantages normally associated with attaching a battery to a tag. A radio communication system comprising a reader and a plurality of RFID tags, and a method of fabricating the RFID tags are also described.
