Surgical instruments with computerization is demanded to prevent medical error, the burden reduction of the nurse, quality improvement of the operation. In this study, a radio frequency identification tag was made from ceramic was developed. As the results, the sterilization characteristic of repetition was 2% of failure rate. The above-mentioned heating tolerance, the characteristic of ultrasonic exposure in water and shock tolerance were 0 % of failure rate not to be confirmed a transformation and impossibility of communication situation on the ceramic RPID tag. In the conclusion, the ceramic RPID tag which has basic characteristics was indicated possibility to be able to use a medical field.
