Impinj Speedway UHF RFID Reader Certified for Operation and Broad Distribution in China

Leading UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions provider Impinj, Inc. today announced that the company’s Speedway® UHF RFID reader is certified to operate in China and is available from the company’s local distribution partners.

Seattle, WA February 14, 2008 - Leading UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions provider Impinj, Inc. today announced that the company’s Speedway® UHF RFID reader is certified to operate in China and is available from the company’s local distribution partners.

Awarded by China’s State Radio Regulation Committee (SRRC), operational certification ensures that RFID products comply with bandwidth, interoperability and performance standards established in March 2007.

“We are very excited to enter the Chinese RFID market with proven products,” said Mendy Ouzillou, product line director of RFID reader products at Impinj. “The performance and reliability of the Speedway reader are particularly attractive to our growing Chinese partner network whose customers require easily deployable RFID solutions for a broad range of applications.”

Impinj’s Speedway reader, designed for operation in China, maintains the same high levels of performance as the Speedway reader platform already deployed in large-scale distribution and supply chain environments in North America and Europe. Operating in the 920 to 925MHz band in China, the Speedway reader is available from Impinj’s growing network of qualified distributors, including Yeon Technologies in China, a wholly owned subsidiary of the YFY Group in Taiwan.

"UHF RFID solutions based on Impinj’s Speedway reader are being evaluated and deployed in many industries in Taiwan including manufacturing, logistics, transportation and retail supply chains,” said Nancy Tai, president of Yeon Technologies. “As Impinj’s first RFID deployment partner in China, we have first-hand knowledge of the tremendous opportunity for the company’s products here.”
