SAM300    Integrated RAIN RFID IoT SoM - System on a Module with WiFi and USB


preliminary information
expected availability Q1 2022


Identix SAM300 is an advanced SoM (System in a Module) multiregional IoT module that incorporates RAIN RFID, WiFi and USB connectivity inside the same package.

With a small compact form factor, high output power, four RF antenna ports and a wide variety of connectivity options the Identix SAM300 RAIN RFID IoT module was specifically designed to be easily embedded in devices which required RAIN RFID connectivity including reading stations, smart shelves, cabinets, smart refrigerators, fixed readers and battery powered devices such as high performances handhelds and sleds.

SAM300 uses newest E310 RAIN RFID reader chip from Impinj which offers best in class performance with reading speeds up to 300 tags/s, reading sensitivity up to -75dBm with low power consumption. Identix SAM300 RFID multiregional capabilities make it the ideal integration choice for devices which requires compliance to different geographical regions.

With programmable output power from 0dBm to +31.5dBm, the RFID reader reaches top reading performances being able to detect RAIN tags from distances over 10m depending on the antenna and the tag used.

Identix's SAM300 fully integrated RoM (Reader on a Module) solution favors space-constrained applications while reducing  development, manufacturing, certifications and integration costs for OEMs.

The embedded high-performance 32-bit microcontroller along with a large amount of memory available allows users to easily white their custom application firmware into SAM300 without even requiring and external host processor. Optionally the embedded MCU can be bypassed/disabled for direct access to the Impinj chip or used together with and external host.
