Impinj E910: The RFID Reader Chip For Next Generation Enterprise IoT
New Impinj E910 RAIN RFID reader chip expands the capabilities for enterprise IoT readers, enabling longer distance and higher density tag reading.
We are very excited to announce the Impinj E910 RAIN RFID reader chip, an expansion of the Impinj E family reader chips which were introduced a year ago. Since that time, more than 35 Impinj partners have either launched or begun development of more than 100 new products using the E family reader chips. The Impinj E910, E710, E510, and E310 RAIN RFID reader chips are high-performance, low-power system-on-chips (SoCs) that address increasing demand for item-level visibility in retail, supply chain and logistics, and other markets. With industry-leading system integration and easy-to-use development tools, the E family reader chips accelerate the development of IoT devices that reliably identify, locate, and authenticate connected things.
The Impinj E910 RAIN RFID reader chip sets a new performance benchmark for the Impinj E family of reader chips. Designed for next-generation enterprise-grade readers, Impinj E910 reader chips can quickly and reliably discover and engage a high-volume of Internet of Things connected items such as retail apparel, pallets, airline baggage, and automobile parts. The Impinj E910 reader chip delivers the industry-leading performance, low power consumption, and ease of use needed for loss prevention, inventory management, and supply-chain automation solutions.
“The Impinj E910 reader chip will shepherd in a new era of RAIN RFID applications that connect trillions of everyday items,” said Chris Diorio, Impinj co-founder and CEO. “The E910 is the most highly integrated, easy to use and sensitive reader chip on the market today, unlocking enterprise RAIN RFID applications in retail, supply chain and logistics, automotive, aviation and myriad other market segments and opportunities.”
New Performance Benchmark
With the highest receive sensitivity, -94 dBm, of any reader chip available today, the Impinj E910 enables reader manufacturers to meet the speed and distance requirements of demanding RAIN RFID applications such as fast-moving conveyors and high-bay warehouse rack systems.
Accelerating IoT Device Development and Time-to-Market
Available now to select Impinj partners, the high-performance E910 expands Impinj’s existing E family of reader chips, which includes the E710, E510, and E310. Together, these chips provide improvements over the prior-generation Impinj Indy reader chips, including:
- Up to 80% smaller RAIN RFID system designs ideal for small, next-generation readers and IoT devices.
- 50% lower chip power consumption, supporting battery-powered, energy-efficient readers and IoT devices.
- Software- and pin-compatible designs for easy performance upgrades and design reuse between E family chips.
Easy-to-use developer tools and a new Impinj R515 reader reference design allow Impinj partners to accelerate new reader innovation. The reference design includes comprehensive documentation and engineering drawings that help IoT device manufacturers maximize the capabilities of the Impinj E910 reader chip in their readers, while at the same time speeding time-to-market.
