Impinj RS2000 RAIN RFID Reader Module Development Kit



Impinj RS2000 RAIN RFID Reader Module Development Kit

The Impinj RS2000 RAIN RFID Reader Module Development Kit is a hardware platform for developing RAIN RFID embedded systems using the Impinj RS2000 reader module. The kit is designed to allow connection to any number of embedded host device types, and quickly prototype and test embedded applications. The Impinj RS2000 is a turnkey embedded reader module based on the market-leading Impinj R2000 reader chip and is ideal for embedded applications requiring long read range of large tag populations, the small form factor and four antenna ports of the Impinj RS2000 enable a wide range of fixed and mobile readers for inventory management, asset tracking, logistics, and industrial automation.

NOTE: This product is a reader module development kit – NOT a finished RFID reader – and is meant for OEM and developers to simply and quickly prototype and test embedded RAIN RFID applications.  If you are interested in an existing finished reader product, check out our line of finished Impinj readers.
