Low Development Risk and Fast Time-to-Market

The Indy RS500 SiP only needs three connections (DC power, UART communication and an antenna) to start reading tags. It eliminates costly mechanical hardware and RF cables that are typically required with reader modules on the market today. Unlike RAIN RFID embedded reader chip solutions that require greater investment due to complexity in RF design, manufacturing and certification, the Indy RS500 requires no external components, is fully tested and meets regulatory requirements.

The Indy RS500 features include:

  • Small 30 x 32 mm2 surface mount package
  • Firmware upgradeable to Gen 2 V2
  • Fully tested with worldwide compliance
  • Shielded package to prevent unwanted radiation and ensure immunity to noise
