Summary: 
In order to incorporate the reader/writers (RWs) into mobile electronic devices, miniaturization and flexibility are required. To meet these requirements, we fabricate an ultra-small RW with multiple contactless interfaces by mounting main unit circuits inside the antenna coil and using flexible multi-layer circuit board.
