cEDM WORKSHOP # 26

Merging of Textiles and Electronics

Invitation: 

Public, Members and Partners

Info: 

The ubiquity of electronics has started and is imagined to increase even more. Future electronics are also expected to have a higher level of product integration with the boundaries between electronics and the remaining of the product less clearly defined. Electronics in textiles are a typical example of such integrated electronic devices. An intense collaboration between textile and electronic manufacturers is needed to develop new products with additional functionality and which remain manufacturable and reliable. During this workshop, Televic and Sioen, being an electronics oriented and a textile company and covering the two involved industrial areas, will share their insights and steps into this market of “smart textiles”. Furthermore, some practical examples and requirements for successful integration of electronics in textiles will be given by Centexbel and Imec, which are both active in the research field of this new technology.
