JADAK Unveils RAIN RFID Starter Kit

JADAK has announced its ThingMagic RAIN Starter Kit, which the company developed in collaboration with Impinj and the RAIN RFID Alliance. The kit supports the RAIN Communication Interface (RCI) and is intended to increase exposure and access to RFID. The starter kit provides a platform for students and hobbyists to use when learning to apply this technology, while also promoting best practices for using RFID.

"It's important for JADAK to support the adoption of [RFID] by increasing access to the technology for students and non-professional developers who will become the future innovators of the Internet of Things," said Harinath Reddy, the senior director of research and development for ThingMagic RFID. The starter kit consists of a ThingMagic reader and sample tags from RAIN RFID Alliance members. The kit provides item connectivity utilizing Impinj's Indy R500 RFID reader chip and sample tags enabled by Impinj's Monza chips.

The kit offers functionality per RAIN RFID Alliance developer community guidelines and provides a solution for hobbyists and students looking to learn and experiment with RFID. It is slated to be made available for sale in September 2019 and will be distributed by Atlas RFID, a global distributor of RFID hardware.
