Seattle, WA July 12, 2006 - Impinj, Inc., a leading provider of RFID products and embedded nonvolatile memories, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Top 100 Private Company award winners.

Impinj and the AO100 will be honored as part of the AO2006: Stanford Summit, July 25-27, at the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto, California. It will bring together successful entrepreneurs, business and political thought leaders, and top venture capitalists to spot trends and spark new ideas and initiatives.

"The AO100 companies are driving the next wave of innovative technologies that are disrupting the old guard and shaping the new media landscape," said Tony Perkins, founder of AlwaysOn. "As ever, we were inundated with nominations from leading companies, and it's heartening to know that tomorrow's thought leaders and technology visionaries are already out there. My congratulations to each AO100 winner - these are the companies which we predict will have the greatest market traction, strongest innovation and most game-changing approaches this year."
