History


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-siliconnewly emerging organic, transparent metal oxide and nano-structure semiconductor TFT technologies are becoming increasingly common. Solution/printing based TFT technologies are also attracting great attention from both academic 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 was previously standing for International Workshop on Compact Thin-Film Transistor Modeling for Circuit Simulation (C-TFT) with its history shown below. Considering the above motivations, in 2014 the conference name is changed to International Conference on Computer Aided Design for Thin-Film Transistors to include more general CAD topics, and the abbreviation C-TFT is changed to CAD-TFT. The conference aims to 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 for practical applications.
