Electronic textiles technologies

Textile integrated electronics enable new applications in numerous fields. They can be used in clothing or close to the body systems acquiring vital parameter like heart rate, breathing rate or muscle activity or being used actively e.g. for functional muscle stimulation. In the non-wearable sector textiles are also all around us and integrated sensing, lighting or heating functionality is adding value in the automotive and home textiles sector. Integrating electronics into textiles require suitable materials and specific technologies to merge these at least partially with conventional electronics to obtain functional and reliable end results. This overview will present technologies to build textile circuits and an integration technology to assemble electronic module onto these.
