Global, Standards-Based IoT and RAIN RFID Technology

Impinj connects everything, enabling people to create a truly boundless IoT.

We see trillions of connectable things

We live in a connected world. Smartphones and other electronic devices share ever-more information over ever-more interconnected radio links, transforming our lives and unlocking unprecedented efficiencies. However, these devices form only a tiny subset of the items in the physical world. Advancements in wireless technology, cloud computing, search, and storage have paved the way for the Internet of Things. Apparel, shoes, jewelry, pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, documents, automotive parts, and food are among the more than a trillion everyday items connectable to the digital world.

Impinj connects everyday items using RAIN RFID, a radio-frequency identification technology we pioneered. We spearheaded development of the RAIN radio standard, lobbied governments to allocate frequency spectrum, and cofounded the RAIN Alliance.
