6th International Conference on

Computer Aided Design for Thin-Film Transistor Technologies (CAD-TFT)

(Formerly International Workshop on Compact Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) Modeling for Circuit Simulation)

Nanjing, China

October 15-17, 2014


In recent years, the popularity of active matrix flat-panel displays and bio-medical imagers in commercial electronic products has drawn a significant attention to thin-film transistor (TFT) technologies. In addition to TFTs in amorphous- and polycrystalline-silicon, newly emerging organic, transparent metal oxide and nano-composite semiconductor TFT technologies are becoming increasingly common. Solution/printing based TFT technologies are also attracting great attention from both academia and industry.  

These new technologies were urged to meet the growing demands for displays of better quality, lower cost and greener manufacturing, and being thin and flexible. Moreover, the applications of TFTs have been extended from the pixel switching, to more complex electronic functions for signal communication, processing and data storage on glass, plastic or fabrics substrates, which will enable a low-cost and flexible design solution to usher the age of pervasive electronics.

Therefore, development of computer aided design (CAD) techniques at all levels becomes more and more important for the TFT community to bridge the new material/device technologies and implementation of functional systems. The CAD-TFT conference will provide a platform for the TFT community to address the challenges and find innovative solutions for modelling of new technology TFTs, TFT circuit design and system integration. The areas of interest for contributors include, but are not limited to:


  • ž   Physics of new technology TFTs (oxide, organic, nanomaterials)
  • ž   Simulation and characterization techniques for TFTs
  • ž   Characterization and modeling the impact of processes on the device performance
  • ž   Compact TFT device models for circuit simulation
  • ž   Model implementation and parameter extraction techniques
  • ž   Compact models for interconnects in active matrix flat panels
  • ž   TFT circuit design and analysis techniques
  • ž   TFT system integration for displays and other applications
