Impinj®’s Indy® R1000 reader chip is a highly integrated, high-performance, low power, SiGe BiCMOS device for ISO18000-6C and Electronic Product Council (EPC) Gen 2 applications. The Indy R1000 reader chip supports a zero intermediate frequency (ZIF) architecture in the worldwide UHF industrial, science, and medical (ISM) band. The Indy R1000 reader chip comprises all of the RF blocks to interrogate and receive data from compatible RFID tags, specifically:

  • High compression point quadrature downconverting mixer
  • Fully integrated voltage controlled oscillator (VCO)
  • Variable receiver (RX) gain control
  • Integrated Power Amplifier (PA)
  • Integrated RF envelope detectors for forward and reverse power sense
  • Integrated multipurpose Analog-to-Digital Converts (ADCs) and Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs)
  • Configurable digital baseband
  • High speed synchronous serial bus or 4-bit parallel bus control

When used in the Indy R1000 Development Platform, which includes an example protocol processor and radio control implementation, the result is a fully functional UHF RFID reader.
