We report on an approach towards integrated complementary-like circuits based on organic ambipolar transistors. In particular, we show that ambipolar transport can be achieved within a single transistor channel using gold electrodes and a solution processable polymer-small molecule blend as the electroactive material. To demonstrate the suitability of these devices for practical utilisation in logic circuits we realise complementary-like voltage inverters comprised entirely of ambipolar transistors. Moreover, by integrating several such inverters we are able to demonstrate more complex circuits such as ring oscillators.
