Product Change Notification (PCN): Impinj End-of-Life of Select xArray Gateway

Due to component end-of-life and the associated complexity of maintaining firmware support and regional certifications, Impinj is initiating the end-of-life process for the following Impinj xArray gateway SKUs:

  • EU1
  • GX1
  • GX2
  • GX3
  • JP2

This notice does not impact the FCC or EU2 Impinj xArray gateway SKUs.

The objective of this notice is to allow for your appropriate planning and the opportunity for last-time purchases. Please note the list of impacted products and critical milestone dates in the tables below and take the necessary steps to meet your requirements.

By placing an last-time-buy order on or after October 4, 2023, you agree that your order will be non-cancelable and non-refundable. Impinj’s current limited inventory of GX1, GX2, GX3, and JP2 xArray gateways will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that no additional orders for EU1 (865-868 MHz) xArray gateways can be accepted because Impinj no longer has inventory of that SKU. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are here to partner with you in your transition.

Alternative Products

EU2 xArray gateways can be used instead of EU1 xArray gateways in certain geographies – see xArray certified regions. Additionally, in many common use cases, the Impinj xSpan RAIN RFID gateway, with its ability to track bi-directional movement of items along one dimension, could be a suitable alternative. For a detailed comparison with the Impinj xArray gateway, please view the Impinj xSpan product brief on the Impinj Support Portal.
