A novel RFID reader antenna with polarization reconfigurable performance is proposed. The radiating part of the reader is a printed square ring, and a reconfigurable feeding network with an embedded PIN diode is introduced to reconfigure polarization. The proposed reader antenna can be linear and circular polarized at the 910 - 930 MHz band by switching ON/OFF the diode. The reader antenna was fabricated and measured and its performance proves it suitable for wireless communication, diversity systems and portable devices.
