Paper Abstract

We have successfully fabricated a variety of analog and digital thin film transistor circuits on a flexible stainless steel foil substrate, the majority of which serve display driver purposes. We have modeled the operation of a number of different circuits, in order to determine how the substrate affects their performance. We have verified that a major performance-limiting factor in this type of circuits is the parasitic capacitance to the conductive substrate. The results of our analysis can also provide for some basic guidelines to aid future design and development.
