What does Impinj, Virage and Intel have in common?
Impinj has certainly gone through a lot of changes in the last couple of months. The company, which asserts itself as the “leading UHF Gen 2 radio frequency identification (RFID) solutions provider,” has recently changed its technology focus. Consider the following:
- July 2008: Impinj acquired Intel’s RFID operation. This business was part of Intel’s R&D effort, specifically its New Business Initiatives (NBI) incubator
- June 2008: Virage Logic acquires Impinj’s Logic Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) IP business
Is there more changes in store for Impinj?
