IPC E-Textiles Initiative

The e-textiles supply chain is working together to develop industry standards, collaborate on education innovations and spurn the advancements of e-textiles—all through IPC.

IPC has created opportunities for members of the growing e-textiles industry to become involved in improving the reliability of products and the strengthen the industry overall.

Call for Abstracts for IPC E-Textiles 2020

September 29-30, 2020
University of Minnesota
Minneapolis, MN, USA

Abstracts due April 10, 2020

IPC invites innovators, technologists, materials suppliers, electrical engineers and academicians to submit technical conference abstracts for IPC E-Textiles 2020, to be held September 29-30, 2020 at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN.

IPC E-TEXTILES 2020 will provide a platform for presenters and their companies to promote their expertise in e-textiles technologies to key contacts from such industries as fashion design, health and medical, sports and athletics, automotive and military/aerospace.

Expert technical presentations are being sought in the following areas:

  • Reliability
  • Test methods
  • Connectors
  • Design
  • Innovations in materials
  • Mass production
  • Washability
  • Market-specific e-textiles technologies (automotive, military, consumer wearables, etc.)
  • Software and programming
  • Sustainability

奔驰宝马游戏大厅An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results.

Technical conference paper abstracts are due April 10, 2020.

Participate in IPC E-Textiles Standards Activities

Updated January 17, 2020

Email ChrisJorgensen@532screwpumps.com to participate in any of the following standards activities. There is no cost or obligation to participate, and all of the groups meet primarily via web meetings to enable the most participation.

Do you have a proposal for a new standard? If so, email Chris.

D-71 E-Textiles Joining and Interconnection Techniques Subcommittee

IPC-8941, Guideline on Connections for E-Textiles
奔驰宝马游戏大厅 This industry guideline will provide key considerations and best practices for connecting e-textiles to components. The components can be the commodity to which the e-textile will provide functionality or components which are attached to e-textiles to augment their performance.

奔驰宝马游戏大厅This document will help users and manufacturers to work together to make best decisions for selecting connector types, connection materials and connection processes based on the e-textile technology to be used and the component to which the e-textile will be connected.

D-73a E-Textiles Printed Electronics Design Standard Task Group

IPC-8952, Design Standard for Printed Electronics on Coated or Treated Textiles and E-Textiles
奔驰宝马游戏大厅 This standard establishes specific requirements for the design of printed electronic applications and their forms of component mounting and interconnecting structures on coated or treated textile substrates. Textile substrate, as pertains to this standard, could be a bare textile or an integrated e-textile (e.g., woven or knitted e-textile).

Coated or treated textile substrates, as pertain to this standard, are textile substrates which have or will have a  coating or treatment localized or across the full substrate.
奔驰宝马游戏大厅 This task group is being led out of Europe, but participation is open to anyone.

D-75a-EU E-Textiles Wearables Standard Task Group in Europe

IPC-8981, Quality and Reliability of E-Textiles Wearables
奔驰宝马游戏大厅 This standard will establish required testing and reliability expectations for e-textiles wearables products. An e-textiles wearable, as pertains to this standard, will be any wearable product that is a complete system utilizing non-electrical textiles and e-textiles (woven, knitted, printed, etc.) with attached/connected functional components, sensors, devices, etc. A first task of the working group will be to clearly define an e-textiles wearable as well as to define other e-textiles structures that could be part of a system (e.g., wires on textile, laminated, conductive polymers, sensors, actuators, etc.).

Other Topics Being Considered by the Committee

  • E-Textiles testing requirements for high-voltage applications
  • Specification for conductive fibers, yarns and wires for e-textiles applications
  • E-Textiles for home furnishings
