About the Impinj Platform
Our platform uses RAIN (UHF) RFID to wirelessly connect billions of everyday items such as apparel, medical supplies, and automobile parts to business and consumer applications such as inventory management, patient safety, and asset tracking. The Impinj platform comprises three layers that together connect items to applications:
- Endpoints: Our endpoint IC product family comprises a family of miniature radios-on-a-chip that attach-to and uniquely identify their host items. Our endpoint ICs power themselves from a reader’s radio waves so don’t need a battery, can wirelessly connect almost any item, and are readable to 30 feet without line-of-sight.
- Connectivity: Our connectivity layer comprises a family of readers, gateways, and reader ICs that wirelessly identify, locate, authenticate, and engage endpoints. These connectivity products wirelessly provide power to, and communicate bidirectionally with, endpoint ICs, identifying and locating up to 1,000 items per second.
- Software: Our software layer includes an operating system for our platform. It extracts Item Intelligence from the connectivity and endpoint layers and delivers that Item Intelligence to business and consumer applications. It also centralizes reader and gateway configuration, management, and control through a management application program interface, or API.
