At present, more and more electronic tags are used in Antitheft system; it is important to examine the performance of electronic tags. The traditional single-transmitter-coil antenna (STC antenna) of the electronic tags tester has some serious drawbacks. So a novel double-transmitter-coil antenna (DTC antenna) is presented in this paper. Compared to the traditional STC antenna, this new antenna has a more excellent performance in the tag test systems, especially when it is used for testing the quality factor of tags.
