Smaller, Faster, Increased Sensitivity

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.
