A process design kit (PDK) for flexible, organic electronics is developed within the 2-HORISONS consortium (Innovation Lab, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, University of Heidelberg, BASF, and Cadence Design Systems). The PDK can be used to design various applications in the fields of Internet-of-Things (IoT), wearables, or health care, among others, within the framework of Cadence tools.

Tutorial on Using our Flexible Hybrid Organic Printed Electronics PDK (FH_OPDK)
Within the 2Horisons BMBF-Project on printed sensor nodes the consortium (Cadence, KIT, BASF, IL and University of Heidelberg) is offering a tutorial on using Flexible Hybrid Organic Printed Electronics PDK (FH_OPDK) to design circuits for Integrated Sensor Platforms.We have developed a dedicated design kit, suitable for running in commercial CAD Tools (Cadence Virtuoso) which supports a full front to back design flow. The design flow includes schematic entry, initial simulation, and layout generation for prototyping. Additional we have developed dedicated transistor models, capacitance models as well as parasitic extraction to allow for high precision modelling.
In the video on the right you can see the creation of a demonstrator using the FH_OPDK. During the tutorial you will be able to try out creating designs using this PDK and Cadence tools installed in a cloud environment.
