Impinj Intros Enterprise-Grade RFID Reader for the IoT

Impinj, a provider of RFID solutions, has introduced its R700 reader designed for enterprise-grade RFID deployments. The reader provides high receive sensitivity, fast network connectivity and edge processing for IoT solutions, the company reports.

The R700 reader, based on Impinj's Speedway reader family, enables developers to build and deploy IoT solutions, according to the company. Features include –92 dBm receive sensitivity, enabling the reading of smaller, global RFID tags at high speeds for loss prevention and other use cases, as well as a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM and a Gigabit Ethernet to allow developers to deploy on-reader tag-processing algorithms that leverage low-latency connectivity to enterprise IoT applications.

The reader supports up to 32 antennas with one-wire antenna connectivity in order to facilitate large-scale system deployments. Integrated, standardized connectors provide support for external peripherals. The device also includes a secure, upgradable Linux operating system, encrypted software and a secure software boot with chain-of-trust to prevent unauthorized software execution.

The R700 reader follows the company's recent introduction of its M700 endpoint IC family. The readers are currently available in limited quantity, the firm indicates, with additional regional support and general availability expected during the third quarter of 2020.
