The prospect of realizing high-performance organic circuits via large-area fabrication is attractive for many applications of organic microelectronics. Here we report solution processed organic field-effect transistors and circuits based on polymer-small molecule blends comprising of polytriarylamine and 5,11-bis(triethylsilylethynyl) anthradithiophene. By optimizing blend composition and deposition conditions we are able to demonstrate short channel, bottom-gate, bottom-contact transistors with high mobility and excellent reproducibility. Using these transistors we have built unipolar voltage inverters and ring oscillators with a single stage delay of 712 ns. These are among the fastest organic circuits reported to date and could satisfy the performance requirements of low-end electronic applications.
