Product Change Notification: End-of-Life Notification for Impinj Indy RAIN RFID R500 and R2000 Reader Chips

On September 30, 2022 Impinj began the end-of-life (EOL) process for the Impinj Indy R2000 and Impinj R500 reader chips. This Product Notice sets the official timeline for the end of production of the Impinj R2000 and the Impinj R500 reader chips.

The objective of providing this notice is to allow for appropriate planning, the opportunity to place last-time-buy orders, and to provide details about alternative products from Impinj and Impinj partners for your consideration.

Impacted Products

Impinj Product Name Impinj Part Number
Impinj Indy R2000 RAIN RFID Reader Chip IPJ-R2000

Please note the critical milestone dates in the tables below and take the necessary steps to meet your manufacturing needs.

Milestone Date Definition
EOL Notification September 30, 2022 Notification of impacted products end-of-life to customers
Last Time Buy (LTB) March 30, 2023 Impinj will no longer take orders for the impacted products
Last Time Ship (LTS) June 28, 2024 Impinj will no longer ship the impacted products after the LTS date

As we are offering an extended EOL timeline to meet your manufacturing needs, Impinj will need to make advanced product purchases. Therefore, all last-time-buy orders will be non-cancelable and non-returnable (“NCNR”) under any circumstances. Please reference Appendix A below for ordering details.

Alternative Products

Your business is very important to us and we are committed to supporting you through this transition. In mid-2021, Impinj launched the E310, E510, and E710 RAIN RFID reader chips, which provide significant improvements in footprint, power consumption, read sensitivity, and RF modes compared with the Indy R500 and R2000 reader chips. RAIN RFID reader modules built by Impinj partners with the Impinj E310, E510, E710, and E910 are able to take advantage of those improvements. Your Impinj account manager can assist in finding an Impinj or a partner-built product alternative to Indy R500 or R2000.

For additional information or assistance with end-of-life planning, please contact your Impinj sales representative or the Impinj Support Team.
