In one embodiment, a radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag includes a substrate having a top surface including first and second ends, a bottom surface, first and second end surfaces, and opposed lateral surfaces, a passive RFID integrated circuit (IC) chip mounted to the top surface of the substrate, a monopole antenna that includes a planar radiating arm that extends out from the RFID IC chip along the top surface of the substrate to the first end of the top surface of the substrate and a matching loop having two grounded matching stubs that surround the chip and a portion of the radiating arm, each matching stub comprising a longitudinal segment that extends along a longitudinal direction of the substrate and a transverse segment that extends along a transverse direction of the substrate along the top surface of the substrate to the radiating arm at a point located between the RFID IC chip and the first end of the top surface, and a ground plane formed on the bottom surface, the second end surface, and the top surface of the substrate, the ground plane wrapping around the substrate so as to extend from the second end of the top surface toward the RFID IC chip and being electrically coupled to the matching stubs and the radiating arm.
