The Impinj Indy RS500 is not recommended for new designs. Impinj will continue to supply the Impinj RS500 reader modules to customer designs that are currently in production. The Impinj RS500 is currently available as a build-to-order product with minimum order quantities required for orders with a requested ship date after March 31, 2021. Please see the Impinj Reader Module Customer Notifications Support page for additional details.
The Impinj Indy RS500 reader module only needs three connections (DC power, UART host communication, and antennas) to start reading tags. The Impinj Indy RS500 reader module is fully tested for worldwide compliance and meets regulatory requirements, enabling fast time-to-market and low development risk.
Alternately, Impinj partners can provide reader modules built with Impinj reader chips. For more details, visit the Impinj-power partner reader modules page.
