Has Impinj's Time To Shine Come?

When Impinj on Monday rolled out two new RFID chips—the Monza/ID chips with factory-programmed product identification numbers and Monaco/64, the first in a line of chips with user-programmable memory—the industry took notice.

The Seattle Times talked about how long Impinj has been sitting on top of the supply-chain RFID world and RFIDUpdate puts Impinj near the top of a list of likely RFID pureplay IPOs, now that Alien Technology has given up its IPO efforts. Inpinj has one thing going for it: it's already reported a profitable quarter. For an RFID firm these days, that's nothing to sneeze in your spreadsheet about.
