This paper proposes a read-only memory driving circuit for RFID tags based on a-IGZO thin-film transistors. The circuit consists of a Johnson counter and monotype complementary gates. By utilizing complementary signals to drive a decoder based on monotype complementary gates, the propagation delay can be decreased and the redundant current can be reduced. The Johnson counter reduces the number of registers. The new circuit can effectively avoid glitch generation, and reduce circuit power consumption and delay.
