This paper exemplifies the design and analysis of an inexpensive, compact high data capacity chipless RFID tag on flexible paper substrate. The size of the overall tag with integrated antennas is similar to that of a credit card. The designed tag uses polarization diversity to provide a bit capacity of up to 30 bits in the short range UWB band of 22-26.5 GHz. A systematic progression on to the incorporation of increased number of bit capacity is depicted hereby. Along with frequency variation, this paper also proposes the scheme for bit detection using phase difference determination in order to increase robustness. An interrogation process of the proposed tag to extract the encoded information is demonstrated here and the resulting analysis establishes the reliability of the designed tag.
