The Impinj platform uses RAIN (UHF Gen2) RFID to enable wireless connectivity to billions of everyday items such as apparel, race bibs, golf balls, and luggage, and delivers each item’s unique identity, location, and authenticity to business and consumer applications. The Impinj platform comprises three layers that together connect items to applications:
Software: Our software provides easy access and control of readers and gateways with simple integration into existing systems enabling inventory and asset management, omnichannel fulfillment, and loss analytics.
Connectivity: Our family of reader chips, readers, and gateways wirelessly identify, locate, authenticate, and engage RAIN RFID tags enabling inventory monitoring, transition detection, tag encoding, and RTLS.
Endpoint ICs: Our family of tag chips provide a unique identifier and deliver unique identification, high performance, flexible memory options, and extended features including privacy and security to RAIN RFID tags.

Impinj Introduces New RAIN RFID Tag Chips
Half the size, reduced costs and increased productivity – this innovation is changing the industry. The recent IC family, introduced by Impinj, Inc (NASDAQ: PI), a leading provider and pioneer of RAIN RFID solutions, in December 2019, translates to a range increase for the inlays and to smaller inlays retaining the same performance.
“In general, most applications today use slower read speeds for the tags in order to maximize sensitivity. Because usually, sensitivity decreases the faster you read the tag. With our new Impinj M700 IC series, sensitivity levels hold nearly constant with read speed. Thereby, readers can run faster, resulting in the reduction of inventory time, as well as reducing labor costs”, explains Chris Diorio, Chief Executive Officer, Vice Chair, and Co-Founder of Impinj.

Accurate data about checked baggage is no longer optional.
The journey of a checked bag is long and a significant source of stress throughout the air travel industry. Passengers fear their luggage will be lost or damaged and airlines dread incurring costs associated with the correction of mishandled baggage.
The pain of customers and airlines can slow down entire airports, costing these travel hubs both financially and reputationally. In 2017, approximately 4.6 billion bags were lost or delayed worldwide, costing the airline industry $2.3 billion USD.
