A screen printer is used to print conductive inks, loaded with silver particles, on nonwoven textiles substrates. To evaluate this technology for use as flexible interconnects; a custom test fixture was designed to assist in the high frequency characterization of CPW transmission lines. Due to the flexible nature of textile substrates it is necessary to have mechanical support at the points of electrical contact. However, the test fixture must not alter the electrical characteristics of the CPW… CONTINUE READING
