Announcing Voyantic, an Impinj Company

Apr 26, 2023

I am happy to share with you that Voyantic is now part of the Impinj family!

Impinj has recently acquired ownership of Voyantic. We at Voyantic will continue our operations as a wholly owned subsidiary of Impinj with our current organization and management team. We are excited about the opportunities this creates for both of us. By joining forces, Impinj and Voyantic have even better opportunities to help companies to excel in RFID.

I am sure most readers of this blog are familiar with Impinj. Impinj is a leading RAIN RFID provider and Internet of Things pioneer. The Impinj platform uses RAIN RFID to deliver timely data about everyday things to business and consumer applications, enabling a boundless Internet of Things.

Voyantic, on the other hand, is known as an expert organization that provides test and measurement solutions to the RFID industry and academia. We will continue on this path with our existing products and services. And there will be more. Together with Impinj, we will have more opportunities to grow and strengthen our offering to the RAIN RFID industry.

I have known several people from Impinj for more than 15 years and always enjoyed working with them. I feel we share a similar culture of valuing expertise and achievement. In addition, we largely share the same customer base. It is our common goal that manufacturers all over the world design and manufacture high-quality RFID inlays and labels. I see that as a key for continued RAIN RFID adoption.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this news. We will also be attending several events in the upcoming weeks where you can meet Impinj and Voyantic representatives, including RFID Journal Live in Orlando and Shanghai IOTE in May, and the RAIN in Action event in Seattle in June.

The Voyantic team looks forward to the future as an Impinj company and continuing to help you to excel in RFID! For more information about the future of Impinj and Voyantic, see the Impinj blog for an update from Chris Diorio.

Tagformance Pro UHF 13.3 Released

Nov 15, 2022

The latest version introduces new features that improve testing efficiency, expand configurability for the tests, and introduce a new JSON result file format.

Voyantic has released new software and firmware versions for Tagformance Pro UHF and Tagformance Pro HF. The new versions are available for download for existing customers with Tagformance version 13 and for all customers with an active Support & Maintenance contract.*

Change log:

  • New fail-fast mode saves time with TIPP and ARC measurements by skipping tests where a result is not possible
  • ARC test: Y specification added
  • Custom command waveforms: control over timing and modulation depth
  • JSON file format
  • NOTE: Tagformance Pro HF users need to update the software too

Fail-fast Mode Saves Time with TIPP and ARC Measurements

Tagformance 13.3 release introduces a new feature to the Tagged-Item Grading System and ARC Pre-compliance testing. The new “fail-fast” test mode option skips unnecessary tests which are bound to fail, saving valuable testing time. For example, if there is an angle where the tag does not reply at all, the rest of the test for the given cell is simply skipped after the first failure. This is particularly useful when testing for all TIPP grade or ARC categories.

The 13.3 version also adds support for the new ARC Y-specification.

Custom Command Waveforms: Control over timing and modulation depth

V13.3 adds new options for custom command waveform generation with control over timings and modulation depth, plus a configuration possibility for ISO18000-6C link parameters. These will add more flexibility for testing and enable new kinds of test scenarios, such as emulating filtered modulation signals.

JSON File Format

The new release also introduces a new result file format that will replace the TFF format in the long term. The new JSON result file is more machine-friendly and allows programmatic post-processing of results, as well as more flexible management of metadata. The old TFF format is still available as a legacy option (import, export), but JSON is the recommended default export format.

Voyantic Tagformance is used in UHF and HF RFID tag design, deployment, item tagging, protocol testing, technical sales, and academic research. It is the industry standard solution for RAIN RFID and NFC testing and measurement.

*V13.3 requires V13 license. Contact for assistance.

Note: Tagformance Pro HF users will need to update the software too.

Voyantic Releases Tagsurance® 3 – The Next-Generation Quality Testing Solution for RAIN RFID and NFC Manufacturing

Jun 28, 2022

Tagsurance 3 Brings Accurate High-Speed Inline Testing into UHF and HF Tag Production to Meet the Growing Needs of the RFID Industry

Today Voyantic is releasing the next-generation solution for RAIN RFID and NFC tag production testing and quality control. Voyantic Tagsurance 3 system brings full visibility into the quality of tags in the production line, ensuring tags meet the designed performance features, without slowing down the production process. The Tagsurance 3 System allows, for example, three-point testing at high speeds, with accurate measurement results.

Tagsurance 3 is a complete solution including the Tagsurance Controller rack for triggering, sequencing, REST API, and operator UI, as well as measurement devices, antennas, cabling, trigger, and rotary encoder. The Tagsurance 3 Controller is ready to be used out-of-the-box. The operator UI is browser-based and easy to use.

The system is designed to be easily installed into various machine types; small and large machines, high-speed machines, chip attachment machines, and converting machines. The system is modular and scales to various production volume needs from 1 to 8 lanes with 1-5 stations per lane, handling lane speeds up to 200 meters per minute.

The new Tagsurance system is the next-generation version of the time-tested, trusted, and accurate quality testing system Voyantic introduced to the industry. In the new system, the hardware, the software, and the technology stack have been upgraded and modernized.

The first version of Tagsurance brought UHF quality testing into tag manufacturing machines. Tagsurance 2 expanded the capabilities into HF quality testing.

“The new Tagsurance 3 is designed to meet the growing demands of the RFID industry. The new system can in many cases handle around twice the speeds for RAIN testing than before, without compromising measurement accuracy. Our goal is to deliver the best performance and make sure the system works reliably for our customers,” says Jussi Nykänen, Director of Production Solutions at Voyantic.

Noora Honkala Sets Multiple Records at the Sparta City Ultra Race

Feb 22, 2022

Saturday, Feb 19, 2022, the city of Sparta in Greece witnessed a staggering performance by one of the best female ultrarunners in the world. Finnish ultrarunner Noora Honkala broke four national records in one single run. Her result was all time 3rd in the 12h race global rankings.

Voyantic has supported Noora in her professional athlete journey since 2017.

The first ever SPARTA CITY ULTRA took place in the Main Street of Sparta, on a two kilometer long loop track. A total of 88 runners participated in the 6h, 12h and 24h races.

Noora started fast by crossing the first marathon at 3:02, and the 50 km at 3:39.32, breaking her first national record. At the 6h mark she had reached 79.00 km, breaking another national record. Not slowing down she passed 100km mark with a time of 7:41.54 (another national record). At this point she was under the world record pace for 12h race. Unfortunately, closing at the 8h mark her stomach started to throw dark skies over her run, forcing her to stop for few times. She tried to keep up the pace but at the 10h mark her stomach forced her to slow down rapidly. Even so Noora held her “slow” pace to the end and finished at 145.400km in 12h — Breaking the 12h national record and putting her the third (3) best performance in all-time world ranking.

Whoever witnessed the race saw a spectacular performance and what ultrarunning is all about. There is plenty more to be seen from Noora!
