We demonstrate an integrated organic double half-wave rectifier for use in organic radio frequency identification (RFID) tags. This rectifier comprises two organic Schottky diodes, each followed by a capacitor, integrated on the same foil. This rectifier delivers approximately twice the dc voltage of single half-wave rectifiers. Its offset voltage is merely 2 V. It is able to generate voltages of 10–14 V, which are necessary for driving current organic RFID multibit code generators, from an ac-input voltage of only 8–10 V amplitude, which are generated at rf magnetic fields of 0.9–1.3 A/m. Such fields are below the minimum required rf magnetic field strength set by standards.
