Abstract

Organic electronics is attracting a lot of attention for large-area pervasive electronics applications, because organic transistors can be fabricated using printing technologies on arbitrary substrates and this enables both high-throughput and low-cost production. In this chapter, some examples of large area electronics based on organic transistors including an EMI measurement sheet, a wireless power transmission sheet, and a communication sheet are presented. Challenges for future large area electronics are also described.

Keywords
