Linear shingling of solar cells has already been known for many years. This work evaluates a new approach of arranging the shingle cells, called matrix shingling and discusses advantages and challenges of this technology. An overview of the most crucial process steps to build matrix modules is presented. Cell-to-module (CTM) simulations are used for a profound loss/gain analysis from host cell to module. A comparison between halfcell modules and matrix modules shows the potential of the matrix technology. Glass facade elements for building integrated PV with red MorphoColor® coating are demonstrated to show the potential of this growing field of application.
