We introduce a microprocessor made by organic thin-film transistors processed directly onto flexible plastic foil. This is a direct realization of a microprocessor by thin-film technology, i.e., without transfer, on plastic. It paves the way to equip mundane supports and objects with low-cost computing power. We also demonstrate the correct execution of a digital signal-processing task, namely increasing the accuracy of a repetitive digital input by time-averaging.
