Impinj Releases New RAIN RFID Tag Chips for Retail & Supply Chain Applications

RAIN RFID solutions expert, Impinj Inc, has introduced its new Impinj M730 and M750 integrated circuits (ICs), the first tag chips in the company’s game-changing Impinj M700 endpoint IC family. The ICs deliver high performance, fast inventory capability, and advanced features for next-generation RAIN RFID tags that can be attached to, or embedded in, nearly any item, and that operate worldwide.

Developed in an advanced semiconductor process node, the Impinj M730 and M750 ICs deliver increased sensitivity to enable the development of small, universal RAIN RFID tags. They also allow retailers to operate their RAIN RFID readers faster than with other tag chips, reducing inventory time and improving productivity. And advanced features enable new solutions for loss prevention with frictionless self-checkout and embedded tagging with seamless product returns.

Enable Advanced IoT Capabilities

Successful retailers are advancing their operations with the integration of IoT technology, like RAIN RFID. Innovative performance improvements made to sensitivity, interoperability, read consistency, and overall dependability across the supply chain are supporting the increasing speed of retail operations. According to Myron Burke, a 25-year veteran of Walmart, Owner of Divergent Technology Advisors, and consultant to Impinj, this growth in performance is opening new doors to greater value propositions like loss prevention, order accuracy to support MABD (must arrive by date), customer pick-up order accuracy and completion tracking, and many more capabilities when coupled with other IoT sensors.

Memory Configuration Options Available

The Impinj M730 IC has 128-bit EPC memory while the M750 IC has 96-bit EPC memory and 32-bit user memory. Both the new ICs provide increased sensitivity, improved readability, advanced features, and are compatible with the GS1 UHF Gen2v2 protocol which ISO/IEC standardized as 18000-63. Impinj has started taking orders for the M730 and M750 with expected delivery starting in the first quarter of 2020. Samples of these ICs are available to all Impinj inlay partners. New products based on the ICs are expected over the coming months from leading RAIN RFID inlay manufacturers.
