Abstract

Our goal is to create thin low-cost flexible NFC tags to allow everyday objects to communicate to smartphones and computers and thus participate in the Internet of Things. We employ amorphous Indium-Gallium-Zinc-Oxide (a-IGZO) thin-film transistor circuits processed at low temperatures, less than 250C, directly on thin polyester substrates. Reaching NFC standards with a-IGZO circuits is challenging because the technology is n-type only and the electron mobility (∼15cm7Vs) is lower compared to silicon. As the main result, we show that the most important NFC regulatory standards are met, even with relaxed 5 micron design rules, using optimized design topologies.
