The IPC-8921 standard provides and defines industry test methods and guidance for providing performance data on key characteristics and durability of woven and knitted e-textiles integrated with conductive fibers, conductive yarns and/or wires. The IPC-8921 standard also provides classifications for woven and knitted e-textiles, fibers, yarns and wires and includes 20 new terms and definitions for...
IPC-WP-024 is a white paper which discusses the issues associated with reliability of smart textiles (e-textiles structures) following multiple washing cycles and emphasizes efforts that industry and research laboratories must undertake to make e-textile structures more robust and able to be washed similarly to everyday textile products (e.g., underwear, clothing, home textiles and technical...
This white paper is a benchmarking exercise of e-textile integrations, providing an introductory categorization of how the current market sector is using textile-based electrical components to achieve integrated functionality. This peer assessment provides a baseline understanding of e-textile process techniques, requirements and resources within this emerging sector.
