Recent advances in materials and device technologies for soft active matrix electronics

Author affiliations

Abstract

Multiplexed active matrix addressing is critical to extract and process signals from a large number of channels. Recently, the soft active matrix has attracted a great deal of attention due to its potential for a variety of applications such as electronic skins, sensors, and bioelectronics. To realize their use in these various applications, flexible and stretchable formats of the active matrix technologies have emerged. In this review, a variety of reports on the soft active matrix are presented and discussed. The technologies of electronic devices implemented in the modern active matrix are introduced. Strategies to achieve flexible and stretchable active matrix technologies, their advantages and disadvantages, and their applications are briefly described. The review closes with a summary, the associated challenges, and future directions for the development of soft active matrix electronics.
