Japan: CMOS Circuit, Temperature Sensor Formed by Using Printing Technology

The newly-developed system [Click to enlarge image] An RFID and temperature sensor [Click to enlarge image] A Japanese research group formed a CMOS circuit and temperature sensor by using printing technology, connected them to an antenna for a frequency of 13.56MHz and transmitted temperature data. The group, which consists of researchers from the University of Tokyo, Technology Research Institute of Osaka Prefecture, etc, made the announcement Jan 26, 2015. The latest results were realized by using a single crystal organic semiconductor whose carrier mobility is 16.2cm2 /Vs, which is more than 10 times higher than that of a conventional organic material. Because a vacuum process is not required, it is possible to reduce manufacturing cost by more than 90%, the group said. To form the CMOS circuit, the "coating crystallization method," which was developed by the group, was...
