Abstract

Hybrid systems combine Large-Area Electronics (LAE) and silicon CMOS ICs for sensing and computation, respectively. Such systems are limited in number of sensors by the interfaces required between LAE and CMOS. One solution is active matrices; however, these are best suited to highly-regular sensor arrangements due to many speed/power-limiting data lines, and ultimately provide only a square-root reduction in the number of interfaces. This paper presents a large-area pressure-sensing system that achieves a much greater reduction in the number of interfaces from distributed LAE sensors to CMOS via an array of frequency-hopping, injection-locked, ZnO-TFT digitally-controlled oscillators (DCOs).
