Impinj, a provider of RAIN RFID solutions, has announced that Cathal Phelan has joined its board of directors. Impinj is a developer of radio-frequency identification devices and software. RAIN RFID is a battery-free, wireless technology system that connects billions of everyday items to the internet, helping businesses and consumers to identify each item.

Phelan is currently CEO of Rapt Touch, a leading provider of touchscreen technology, and a consultant on business strategies, intellectual property management, systems and semiconductor designs. He previously served as CEO of Ubicom, and led several business units and served as chief technical officer over his 20-year tenure at Cypress Semiconductor Corporation. Phelan has served on boards of directors for both public and private technology companies. He holds bachelors’ degrees in mathematics and electronic engineering and a master’s degree in microelectronic engineering from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, Impinj said in a press release.

“We are thrilled to have Phelan join our board. His business leadership, 30 years of engineering experience, and broad semiconductor background stood out through our thorough search. Phelan will strengthen the board independence we value at Impinj,” Impinj board chair Peter van Oppen said.

“Phelan’s deep understanding of radio technologies and solutions, as well as his history leading advanced technology businesses, will serve us well. We will also benefit significantly from his extensive experience managing all aspects of intellectual property,” Impinj CEO Chris Diorio said. (GK)
