Impinj Indy Series Reader Chips—Embed Connectivity into Devices
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.
Embedded RAIN RFID chips enable a broad spectrum of devices and solutions
Impinj Indy R2000 and R500 reader chips contain a complete RAIN RFID front-end and modem, and require minimal external components to implement a RAIN RFID reader circuit. The Impinj R2000 chip offers high sensitivity and tag read rate performance, and the Impinj R500 chip provides a low-cost alternative for proximal use cases. Both chips share the same dimensions and pinout, enabling easy migration between the two. Together these chips power a wide range of RAIN RFID devices, including handhelds, tablets, POS, access control, shelf readers, gateways, fixed readers, and more.
Notice: Impinj R2000 and R500 are not recommended for new designs.
Why use Impinj Indy RAIN RFID reader chips
