Summary This paper presents an Electrowetting-on-Dielectric (EWOD) device with optimized insulating layers operated by low actuation voltage. The device consists of an electrode array on a silicon substrate, covered by a dielectric layer and a hydrophobic layer. To characterize the performance of the device, simulations are performed for the dielectric layer of Sio2 and the hydrophobic layer of Sio2, Su-8 and Parylene C at different voltages. The volume finite difference approach of the Coventorware software was used to carry out the simulations. Two different molar of di-ionized water droplet were considered in the simulations. It was observed that the device having the Sio2 dielectric layer and the Parylene C hydrophobic layer moved the 1M KCL (potassium chloride) droplet at the actuation voltage of 25V.
