Indy® reader chip

Impinj's Indy® reader chips are highly integrated, high-performance RFID reader radio chips, providing robust support for the latest UHF Gen 2 standards and worldwide regulatory requirements.

The highly integrated Indy RFID reader chips and supporting software deliver the building blocks for a full range of UHF Gen 2 RFID readers, from short-range embedded modules to long-range dock door readers.              

The Indy R1000 RFID reader chip:

  • Incorporates complete UHF Gen 2 standard transmit, receive, demodulation, and baseband functions
  • Integrates up to 90% of the components in a discrete reader design, providing for significantly smaller reader designs
  • Lowers design complexity, cuts manufacturing costs, and increases reliability
  • Enables longer battery life for handheld readers, power over USB for short range readers, and Power over Ethernet (PoE) for high performance, long range readers
  • Supports EPCglobal Gen 2 and ISO-18000-6C specifications, regional regulatory requirements and the full 840-960 MHz band
  • Supports low-level diagnostics, remote management and provisioning, and easy integration
  • Includes protocol firmware, programming tools, radio drivers and schematics to enable quick time-to-market

Indy R2000 RFID Reader Chip—Adding Performance

The Indy R2000 RFID reader chip addresses challenging RFID applications. It advances the R1000 design with:

  • Enhanced read accuracy and range via carrier cancellation technology
  • Increased protocol configurability and access to advanced radio features
  • Improved transmit phase noise to ease support for global regulatory requirements
