In this work, we present the implementation and measurement results of all analog building blocks of an organic smart sensor system on foil. The presented building blocks are a 1D and a 2D 4 × 4 pixel flexible capacitive touch sensor with a sample rate of 1.5 kS/s, a DC-connected two-stage opamp with a 20 dB DC gain, a Dickson DC-DC up-converter with output bias voltages up to 60 V and down to - 40 V which are used as a bias voltage in the other building blocks, and a ΔΣ ADC with a 26.5 dB precision and a band width of 15.6 Hz. The sensors, the opamp, the DC-DC converter and the ADC respectively consume 6 μA, 15 μA, 1 μA and 100 μA from a 15 V power supply.
