Method of fabricating a flexible organic integrated circuit

Method of making an organic flexible integrated circuit includes providing a rigid substrate, such as a silicon wafer, and providing alternating layers of thin film conductors and dielectrics to thus yield interconnect layers including a flexible substrate on the rigid substrate to yield a high density interconnect. Further, the method includes fabricating an organic transistor, and connecting the organic transistor to the high density interconnect to form an organic integrated circuit including the flexible substrate. Then, the rigid substrate and the flexible substrate may be attached to a support. The integrated circuit attached to the rigid and flexible substrates may be tested prior to this attachment. Then the rigid substrate may be removed from the flexible substrate, such as by a destructive. The integrated circuit may be tested gain at this point. The organic integrated circuit may then be released from the support to yield a flexible integrated circuit.
