Electronic textiles are an enabling technology for a variety of applications in health care, rehabilitation or sports. In this paper, three methods to combine flexible plastic strips with textiles are discussed. Flexible plastic strips serve as carriers for electronic devices. The first approach uses a roving frame to wrap flexible plastic strips with cotton fibers. For the second method, flexible plastic strips are woven into textiles using a narrow fabric loom and a rapier loom. In the third…

Integration of stretchable and washable electronic modules for smart textile applications
Today electronics in “wearable systems” or “smart textiles” are mainly realised on traditional interconnection substrates, like rigid printed circuit boards or mechanically flexible substrates. The
Weaving integrated circuits into textiles
TLDR
The woven textile is used as a part of an undershirt to monitor the temperature between skin and clothing layers to predict heat stroke and undercooling and is only one of many wearable computing applications that can be enabled with this smart textile technology.
Woven Thin-Film Metal Interconnects
The next step in the evolution of electronic textiles (e-textiles) involves the integration of electronics at the yarn level. We aim to integrate "electronic yarns" into textiles by fabricating
Towards woven logic from organic electronic fibres.
TLDR
A novel approach through the construction of wire electrochemical transistor (WECT) devices is reported, and it is shown that textile monofilaments with 10-100 mum diameters can be coated with continuous thin films of the conducting polythiophene poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene), and used to create micro-scale WECTs on single fibres.
