Impinj RAIN RFID Reader Chips—Embed Connectivity into Devices
Impinj reader chips provide a foundation for designing a wide range of smart edge devices with embedded RAIN RFID read/write capability. To simplify the development of customized RAIN RFID enabled devices and IoT solutions, Impinj partners offer a broad portfolio of highly integrated reader modules built using Impinj chips.
- Purpose: High-performance handheld readers and fixed readers in shelves, cabinets, and conveyors
Industry-leading receive sensitivity for long read range, improved read rate, and support for next-generation RAIN tags—this chip is designed for IoT devices that identify, locate, and authenticate large numbers of tagged items quickly.
- Purpose: Point-of-sale devices, mobile and wearable readers, smart appliances, and connected consumables
High-performance receive sensitivity for medium read range, improved read rate, and support for next-generation RAIN tags—this chip is designed for a range of IoT devices that identify, locate, and authenticate groups of tagged items quickly.
- Purpose: Printers, point-of-sale devices, kiosks, and security and access management systems
Good receive sensitivity for close read range, improved read rate, and support for next-generation RAIN tags—this chip is designed for IoT devices that quickly identify, locate, and authenticate individual or small groups of tagged items.
- Purpose: Embed RAIN connectivity into a range of reading devices
- Notice: Not recommended for new designs
Impinj Indy RAIN RFID reader chips set the performance standard for more than a decade. Together, the Indy R2000 and R500 reader chips power a wide range of RAIN RFID devices, including handhelds, tablets, POS, access control, shelf readers, gateways, fixed readers, and more.
