Paper Title:
Droplet Movement on a Low Cost EWOD According to Applied Frequencies and Voltages
  Abstract

In this work, an electro-wetting on dielectric device (EWOD) with array style electrodes was fabricated from low price and common electronic materials. With its low cost and uncomplicated fabrication process, it is useful and feasible in teaching and educating young engineers on such droplet movement technique. The array electrodes were made from a common printed circuit board and copper tapes. The applied fabrication technique is mentioned in this paper. The water droplet movement in corresponding to the applied frequencies and voltage is reported.
