Impinj, Inc., incorporated on April 6, 2000, is a provider of RAIN radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions. The Company sells a platform that includes endpoint integrated circuits (ICs), reader ICs, readers and gateways that enable wireless connectivity to everyday items, and software that delivers Item Intelligence from endpoint reads.
The Impinj Platform connects billions of everyday items, such as apparel, medical supplies, automobile parts, drivers' licenses, food and luggage to applications, such as inventory management, patient safety, asset tracking and item authentication, delivering real-time information to businesses about items they create, manage, transport and sell. The Impinj Platform wirelessly delivers information about these items' identity, location and authenticity, or Item Intelligence, to the digital world.
The Impinj Platform delivers Item Intelligence to enterprise and consumer applications through both hardware and software elements, including endpoints, connectivity and software, in retail, pharmaceutical, healthcare, food and beverage, manufacturing and supply chain logistics, and other industries. Its endpoint comprises a RAIN-enabled tag, such as a price tag, and the item to which it is attached. It enables endpoint connectivity through its reader ICs, stationary readers and gateways that wirelessly power and read tags. Its software, called ItemSense, is an operating system that connects the physical and digital worlds. It extracts Item Intelligence from endpoints, reads and delivers it to applications through representational state transfer (REST)-based query and event application program interfaces (APIs).
The Company's products include RAIN RFID READER CHIPS, which embed RAIN RFID read/write capability; RAIN RFID TAG CHIPS, which provide readability and support high-speed encoding and chip-based serialization; RAIN RFID READERS, which deliver visibility of tagged inventory and assets; RAIN RFID GATEWAYS, which combine reader performance with antenna arrays to identify items and their locations within large area, and RAIN RFID SOFTWARE, which simplifies RAIN RFID processes, including device management, data processing and tag encoding.
The Company competes with NXP B.V., Alien Technology Corporation, STMicroelectronics, Phychips Inc. and Zebra Technologies, Inc.
