Abstract

Besides traditional RFID [1], an emerging application of large-area electronics is hybrid systems [2], where we need to transfer power and signals from one flexible sheet to another. This is driven by manufacturing considerations: sheets providing different functionality, via different materials and devices, can simply be laminated together. Hard-wired metallurgical bonds between flexible sheets are expected to be problematic, especially for reliability, motivating the use of non-contact inductively-coupled interfaces between adjacent sheets [2-3]. For efficiency of such interfaces, high-frequency thin-film diodes (HF-TFDs) are required, since inductive losses are lower at high frequencies [3].
