Woven Light Emitting Display

Inese Parkova


Electrotextiles represent a huge potential in creating
a new generation of flexible textile platforms for electronic
systems and smart garments. In this research of electrotextile
fabrication weaving method was used. Fully or partly replacing
traditional (non-conductive) textile yarns with conductive textile
yarns, it is possible to get woven conductive textile material or
fabric circuit. In the paper weaving method is considered for
electro textile design and process of flexible textile light-emitting
display fabrication is described. Fabric with interwoven
conductive yarns to which light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were
attached was designed. This technology is not only limited to light
illuminated displays but can also be used to build other smart
textile constructions like sensors, conductive textile traces etc.
