A CPU is produced on a glass substrate using continuous-gain silicon TFTs. Corning 1737 glass with a distortion point of 640°C forms the glass substrate and the process temperature never exceeds 550°C. The 8b CPU contains 13,000 TFTs and the chip area is 13 × 13mm2. Operation at a frequency of 3MHz was confirmed at 5V.
