[Podcast] Enabling a Connected World: Impinj’s Vision for RFID Technology (with Todd Farley)

Learn about the application of RFID technology in this podcast episode with Todd Farley, Senior Vice President, Global Sales at Impinj.

What is Impinj?

Impinj, a leading provider of RFID solutions headquartered in Seattle, Washington, is revolutionizing the way everyday items are connected to the digital world. With a focus on IoT (Internet of Things) and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology, Impinj manufactures semiconductors, reader chips, and readers to provide digital identities to a wide range of items.

Exploring RAIN RFID and its applications 

RAIN RFID, synonymous with ultra-high frequency RFID, is a passive technology that utilizes chips or semiconductors to hold data until they receive a signal from a reader. Unlike low-frequency (LF) and high-frequency (HF) RFID, RAIN RFID allows for a one-to-many relationship, making it ideal for applications such as asset tracking in data centers or inventory management in retail. With a read range of approximately 15 meters, RAIN RFID eliminates line-of-sight requirements and facilitates efficient and accurate tracking.

Industries Impinj serves 

Impinj primarily caters to the retail, supply chain, and logistics industries. Major retailers embed RFID chips in hang tags for soft goods, enabling effective inventory management. In supply chain and logistics, RFID technology is vital for tracking assets such as blade servers and trailers. 

However, the versatility of asset tracking through RFID extends to other industries such as manufacturing and food production, highlighting the technology’s wide applicability.

The power of partnerships 

Impinj’s partner program plays a crucial role in its go-to-market strategy. Todd emphasized that while Impinj specializes in RFID technology, partnerships allow them to leverage the expertise of companies in various domains.
