About Impinj

Impinj, Inc. is the leading provider of UHF RFID solutions for identifying, locating and authenticating items. Impinj’s GrandPrix™ technology platform is the most comprehensive and widely adopted in our industry. The GrandPrix platform’s key elements are Monza® tag chips, Indy® reader chips, and Speedway® readers and subsystems. RFID systems built on the GrandPrix platform deliver real-time information about tagged items, thereby enabling applications and analytics designed to improve business decisions and enhance consumer experience. Leading retail, apparel, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, technology and logistics companies as well as government agencies rely on our GrandPrix platform.

Impinj focuses exclusively on UHF (ultra-high frequency) RFID (radio-frequency identification) solutions. UHF RFID enables writing individualized information to and reading information from tagged items without line of sight, at longer range, higher speed, lower cost, and with more automation than any competing technology. Impinj embraces the global industry standard for UHF RFID, called UHF Gen 2, which we extend through our leadership in the standards-setting process and enhance with our proprietary technologies and deep domain expertise. UHF Gen 2 systems are ideally suited for high-volume, item-level applications that require low-cost consumable tags, such as retail inventory management, pharmaceutical authentication, and airline baggage tracking.

Impinj was founded on technology developed by Dr. Carver Mead and Dr. Chris Diorio that enables low power, programmable, minimum-size analog circuits. Semiconductor visionary Dr. Mead was awarded the National Medal of Technology in 2003 and has founded more than twenty companies in his professional career. The driving force behind the UHF Gen 2 standard and winner of the RFID Journal Live! Special Achievement award in 2011 for those efforts, Dr. Diorio is Chairman and CTO of Impinj and also an Associate Professor at the University of Washington. He has personally revolutionized using RFID in applications from supply-chain to pharmaceuticals.

Impinj, founded in May 2000, is privately held and has raised over $110 million in funding. Investors include ARCH Venture Partners, Alliance Bernstein, GF Private Equity, Inventec Appliances Corporation, LS Industrial Systems Co. Ltd., Madrona Venture Group, Mobius Venture Capital, Polaris Venture Partners, Samsung Ventures America, UPS Strategic Enterprise Fund, Unilever Technology Ventures, Venture Tech Alliance, Viterbi Group, and YFY Group.

25 years ago the R&D team leader for Mobira (Nokia)Talkman, Jorma Lalla, followed his entrepreneurial aspirations and as a result — Nordic ID was born.

A Finnish retailer was losing money as he was unable to trace his roller cages and crates. The innovator in our CEO jumped to the rescue. And since 1995 more than 150 000 people benefit from the data captured with the Nordic ID mobile equipment on a daily basis.

Every Monday between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM GMT approximately 1 billion transactions are made with Nordic ID devices.
