Checkpoint Systems and Impinj Team to Create ARC-Qualified RFID Inlay

Checkpoint Systems, a leading global supplier of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) and RFID solutions for the retail industry, has created the first Auburn University ARC-qualified inlay incorporating the Impinj Monza R6-A chip using its own Vortex RFID label.

The ARC Program tests and benchmarks RFID tag performance and shares that data with the retail supply chain. This ensures that retail suppliers can deliver RFID-tagged products to retailers that meet or exceed the levels of performance necessary to provide benefit to both the retailer and the retail supplier. The new Vortex R6-A inlay is significant in that it is based upon the Monza R6-A tag chip, which helps retailers implement "Privacy by Design" principles to protect consumer privacy.

"As the industry enhances privacy controls, in part because of regulations such as GDPR, retailers are rethinking how to address the privacy interests of consumers," said Carl Brasek, senior director for silicon products at Impinj. "Impinj and Checkpoint are leading the way in providing retailers with the ability to design privacy into their RAIN RFID programs while still harnessing all the benefits of a RAIN solution."
