Impinj Unveils Enterprise-Grade RAIN RFID Reader for NextGen IoT Solutions

RAIN RFID solutions expert, Impinj Inc, has unveiled a new reader for enterprise-grade RAIN deployments. The Impinj R700 reader delivers industry-leading performance with the excellent receive sensitivity, fast network connectivity, and powerful edge processing for next-generation IoT solutions.

With leading enterprises wanting to connect everything to the IoT, the R700, has been designed to help make this possible. With industry-leading receive sensitivity, the reader can read very small, global RAIN tags at the highest speeds. It also builds on Impinj’s long history delivering readers with enterprise-grade reliability, maximizing solution up-time, and protecting enterprise investments.

The R700 reader builds on the heritage of the Impinj Speedway reader family, enabling developers to quickly and easily build and deploy IoT solutions.

Key Product Features:

  • -92 dBm receive sensitivity enables reading smaller, global RAIN RFID tags at high speed for demanding use cases such as RAIN-based loss prevention.
  • 1 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, and Gigabit Ethernet allow developers to deploy sophisticated on-reader tag-processing algorithms that leverage low-latency connectivity to enterprise IoT applications.
  • Support for up to 32 antennas with one-wire antenna connectivity facilitates large-scale system deployments.
  • Integrated, standardized connectors provide rich support for external peripherals.
  • Secure, upgradable Linux operating system, encrypted software image, and a secure software boot with chain-of-trust prevents unauthorized software execution and addresses the demanding security needs of enterprise customers.

The introduction of the R700 reader follows Impinj’s recent introduction of the Impinj M7xx (Impinj M730/ Impinj 750) endpoint IC family. Both are key elements of the Impinj platform, which comprises of RAIN endpoints ICs, connectivity and software. Organizations around the world use the Impinj platform to connect items to applications, replacing assumptions about those items with direct observations, thereby gaining the confidence to take action to improve their operations.

The Impinj R700 is currently available in limited quantities, with additional regional support and general availability expected in third-quarter 2020.
