© 2016 IEEE. Implementation of organic digital circuits (or printed electronic circuits) has been under an extensive investigation, facing some critical challenges such as process variability, device performance, cell design styles and circuit yield. Failure in any single Organic Thin Film Transistor (OTFT) often causes the whole circuit to fail since integration density is still low. For the same reason, the application of fault tolerant techniques is not that popular in these circuits. In this paper, we propose an approach for the direct mapping of digital functions on top of new prefabricated structures: Inkjet-Configurable Gate Arrays (IGA). This alternative has two main advantages. First, it helps to obtain high yield circuits out of mid-yield foils, and second, it allows implementing individual circuit personalization at a very low cost by using additive mask-less printing techniques thus avoiding the need for OTPROM-like (or E2PROM) devices. All along the design process of IGA cells and structures we used the scalability and technology-independent strategies provided by parameterizable cells (PCell) what helps dealing with current fast technology evolution.
