Printed Organic Complementary Inverter with Single SAM Process Using a p-type D-A Polymer Semiconductor
AbstractThe demonstration of the complementary integrated circuit using printing processes is indispensable for realizing electronic devices using organic thin film transistors. Although complementary integrated circuits have advantages such as low power consumption and a wide output voltage range, complementary integrated circuits fabricated by the printing method have problems regarding driving voltage and performance. Studies on fabrication processes of electronic circuits for printing technology, including optimization and simplification, are also important research topics. In this study, the fabrication process of the printed complementary integrated circuit was simplified by applying a p-type donor-acceptor (D-A) polymer semiconductor, which is not strongly affected by the electrode work function. An inverter circuit and the ring oscillator circuit were demonstrated using this process. The fabricated ring oscillator array showed excellent performance, with low voltage operation and low performance variation. View Full-Text
