    We present two-part stretchable passive UHF RFID textile tags using electro-textile and embroidered antennas, and test their reliability under cyclic stretching. The tags'wireless performance is evaluated initially and after up to a 100 stretching cycles. The measurement results show that the initial read ranges of the electro-textile and embroidered tags are 5.5 meters and 6.3 meters, respectively. The cyclic strain does not affect the read ranges of the embroidered tags, and the read ranges of the electro-textile tags are only slightly affected, i.e., decreased about 50 cm after the first stretching cycle, and then settled Based on these results, the use of two-part structures can improve the strain reliability of textile RFID tags.
