      Impinj, Inc. (NASDAQ: PI) experienced a notable uptick of 2.13% in its stock value, culminating in the latest trading session closing at $82.62. This surge was propelled by significant insider activity, specifically, a noteworthy acquisition by Sylebra Capital Ltd, a 10% owner. On Monday, Sylebra Capital Ltd disclosed its acquisition of 88,028 shares of Impinj (PI), amounting to a substantial investment of $7,026,815. The acquisition was executed at an average share price of $79.79, contributing to the 10% owner firm’s augmented stake, which now stands at 4,118,587 PI shares.

      In recent developments, Impinj introduced the Impinj R720 RAIN RFID reader, showcasing enhanced processing power and memory compared to its predecessor. This advancement expedites edge processing, mitigating network load and latency. The Impinj R720 caters to the escalating demand within enterprises for reliable, real-time data concerning their manufactured, transported, and sold items.

      Equipped with robust edge processing capabilities, the reader supports application software and algorithms, facilitating the collection and management of enterprise data at its source.
