Impinj Makes Milestone Shipping 25 Billionth RAIN RFID Endpoint IC
Impinj has shipped its 25 billionth Monza endpoint IC, including 7.1 billion in 2017 alone, and has shipped more endpoint ICs than all other RAIN RFID suppliers combined. Impinj’s vision is to deliver digital life to everyday items such as retail apparel, medical supplies, luggage, automobile parts and more, extending the reach of the Internet by a factor of 1,000.
“We have reached a milestone in the worldwide adoption of Impinj endpoint ICs, based significantly on retail deployments,” said Chris Diorio, CEO at Impinj. “What we find exciting is how businesses are looking for transformative business value from RAIN, including deploying fixed readers to provide real-time visibility about their items. These companies are integrating real-time RAIN data into their existing software systems and business processes to gain both agility in decision-making and efficiencies from automated processes.”
Impinj’s achievement reflects wide adoption across diverse markets including retail, healthcare, supply chain & logistics, industrial manufacturing and more and is being announced in connection with NRF 2018.
