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.

Impinj E510 Reader Chip

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 

  • Design a range of performance RAIN RFID readers: Build a portfolio of devices where high-performance sensitivity, mid-range distances, and fast read rates differentiate your products from the competition.
  • Build small, powerful, energy-efficient products: Target new and emerging use cases with small, efficient, wearable devices that support hands-free workflows. Design embedded readers for connected consumer applications and smart appliances.
  • Accelerate innovation of next-generation IoT solutions: Reach emerging markets quickly with a powerful, differentiated product portfolio. The ease of use, development tools, and pre-certified partner-built modules reduce the complexity and timeline of new product development.
