Precisia Partners With Impinj To Launch RFID Products
Press release from the issuing company
ANN ARBOR, MI, April 12, 2005 — Precisia LLC, a leading developer of advanced printed electronics technologies, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Flint Ink Corporation, announced today that it is partnering with Impinj, Inc. to launch a line of RFID products utilizing Impinj's family of chips.
Precisia's products delivered through the partnership will utilize Impinj's Monza, EPCglobal Generation 2 compliant RFID tag silicon, as well as its ZumaRFID Class 0+ chips. Precisia will design, prototype, test and print its own antennas for the inlays it produces with the chips, or will print existing antenna designs developed by Impinj.
RFID antennas designed and printed by Precisia have been used by Impinj for more than a year. Precisia’s experience with inline webfed and sheetfed printing processes has consistently demonstrated the performance and high production efficiencies of printed antennas.
"Precisia is a highly responsive company and we are impressed with their RFID products and printed electronics technologies," said Dr. William Colleran, president and CEO of Impinj. "We're very pleased that they have selected Impinj's Monza and ZumaRFID chips to use with their innovative printed antennas for their products. We anticipate our collaboration will deliver maximum performance to our customers.”
Dr. Graham Battersby, president of Precisia, noted, "The addition of Impinj as a valued partner further demonstrates Precisia's customer-responsive, multi-partner, multi-option operating philosophy. In an RFID market that is growing and changing rapidly, we are continuing to pursue partnership opportunities for Precisia with combinations of resources and solutions to meet our customers' specific applications needs."
