Impinj E500 Series Reader Chips
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.
The Impinj E510 reader chip is designed for point-of-sale devices, mobile and wearable readers, smart appliances, and connected consumables. The Impinj E510 is part of a portfolio of new systems-on-chips (SoCs) built on a heritage of the Impinj Indy series that set performance standards for over a decade. Compared to the Impinj Indy R500, the Impinj E510 reader chip delivers:
- High-performance receive sensitivity and up to 14 dB better receive sensitivity for reliable performance in new and emerging uses
- Up to 50% lower chip power consumption, supporting battery-powered, energy-efficient IoT devices
- Up to 80% smaller RAIN RFID system designs ideal for small, next-generation devices
With industry-leading system integration and easy-to-use development tools, the Impinj E510 enables the development of quick-to-market IoT devices.
Why use Impinj E500 series reader chips
