Abstract: We experimentally verify that the methodology to account for local parameter variations and transistor mismatch known in Si CMOS technologies can be transposed to organic thin-film transistor technologies, and we present a design case that makes use of design for variability. Transistor parameter variation decreases with the square root of the transistor footprint. As a consequence, Monte Carlo simulations which take this effect into account can be executed to better predict the final circuit yield. The design case in this work is an 8-bit, organic RFID transponder chip. The yield prediction by simulations corresponds to the finally observed circuit yield.
