About CAD-TFT 2022

The 13th CAD-TFT (International Conference on Computer-Aided Design for Thin Film Transistor Technologies) is a two-day, August 19-20, 2022, hybrid event dedicated to computer aided design (CAD) of thin-film transistor (TFT) technologies for displays, sensors, and in general large area or flexible electronics systems. The TFT technologies are being continuously challenged by the growing demands for displays with better quality, lower cost, greener manufacturing, and mechanical flexibility and beyond displays for all pervasive human-machine-environment interfaces. Therefore, the CAD techniques at all levels have become increasingly important for the TFT community to connect device technologies, manufacturing, and circuits & systems. And, CAD-TFT annual conference is a forum for engineers and scientists to get together and present the recent developments in TFT CAD techniques for technology development, device engineering, circuit design, and systems integration.

Conference Scope​

This conference will provide a forum for discussions and current practices on compact modeling and to promote research on CAD techniques at all levels (TCAD including materials and processing, compact modelling, circuit & system design) of TFTs and related device and manufacturing technologies. It is also intended to promote the training of students, young researchers and engineers and to build international, academic-industry, and cross-level collaborations to evoke new applications of TFT technologies, including flexible electronics. The workshop is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE EDS Compact Modeling Technical Committee and Organic Electronics Technical Committee. A partial list of the areas of interest includes, but not limited to:

  • Device physics of TFTs and operating principles.
  • Compact TFT device models for circuit simulation.
  • Model implementation and circuit analysis techniques.
  • Model parameter extraction techniques.
  • TFT design for displays and emerging applications, including flexible electronics.
  • TCAD, including materials and processing.
