Impinj recently unveiled the Impinj E910 RAIN RFID reader chip for next-generation enterprise-grade readers that can find and interact with many connected objects, including retail clothing, pallets, airline baggage, and automobile parts. The Impinj E910 reader chip provides the industry-leading performance, low power consumption, and user-friendliness required for loss prevention, inventory management, and supply-chain automation solutions.
Chris Diorio, Impinj co-founder, and CEO stated, “The Impinj E910 reader chip will shepherd in a new era of RAIN RFID applications that connect trillions of everyday items. The E910 is the most highly integrated, easy-to-use, and sensitive reader chip on the market today, unlocking enterprise RAIN RFID applications in retail, supply chain and logistics, automotive, aviation, and myriad other market segments and opportunities.”
The Impinj E910 offers the highest receive sensitivity for any reader chip, -94 dBm, allowing reader manufacturers to meet the speed and distance requirements of demanding RAIN RFID applications like fast-moving conveyors and high-bay warehouse rack systems.
The high-performance E910 simplifies IoT device development by expanding Impinj’s existing E family of reader chips, which includes the E710, E510, and E310. These chips, when combined, provide advantages over previous-generation Impinj Indy reader chips, including, RAIN RFID system designs that are up to 80% smaller and are ideal for small, next-generation readers and IoT devices.
It supports battery-powered, energy-efficient readers and IoT devices by lowering chip power consumption by 50%. Software and pin-compatible designs allow simple performance upgrades and design reuse across the E family of chips.
Impinj partners can accelerate new reader innovation with simple developer tools and a new Impinj R515 reader reference design. The reference design includes extensive documentation and engineering drawings to assist IoT device manufacturers in maximizing the capabilities of the Impinj E910 reader chip in their readers while also reducing time-to-market. The Impinj E910 is a step forward for the Impinj platform, which includes RAIN tag chips, reader chips, readers, and Impinj’s partner ecosystem.
