Abstract

It is known that in many wireless organic electronic applications the required supply voltage is higher than the accessible signal amplitude. Therefore, voltage multiplier circuits are needed in many cases. We report a gravure printed organic charge pump circuit operating at 13.56 MHz suitable for rectified voltage amplification in printed electronic devices. The circuit, consisting of four diodes and four capacitors, has been monolithically printed using only high volume production compatible manufacturing methods. With 10 V AC input the output of the circuit at 13.56 MHz is 8.4 V and 11.8 V using 1 MΩ and 10 MΩ output loads, respectively. At 13.56 MHz the output voltage of the charge pump is three times higher than the output of a half-wave rectifier. The results demonstrate the possibility to print efficient high frequency (HF) charge pump circuits to meet the supply voltage requirements of the printed electronic applications.
