Printed organic electronics are being explored for a wide range of possible applications, with much of the current focus on smart labels, wearables, health monitoring, sensors and displays. These applications typically integrate various types of sensors and often include silicon integrated circuits (IC) for computation and wireless communications. Organic thin film transistors (TFT), particularly when printed, have performance and yield limitations that must be accommodated by the circuit design. The circuit design also needs to select sensor technology, ICs and other circuit elements to integrate with the TFTs and match the functional and performance requirements of the application. This paper describes organic TFT properties and strategies for circuit and sensor design, with examples from various sensor systems.
