E-Textiles Network Webinar – Definition of Norms and Testing Standards for E-Textile Structures

Presented by Prof. Vladan Koncar, Gemtex

This webinar will introduce the IPC-8981 Quality and Reliability for E-Textiles Wearables standards. As the E-Textile market continues to grow, comparable quality and reliability standards across the multitude of E-Textile applications become a necessity. Thus far, there are no proper E-Textile reliability standards, so E-Textile manufacturers look to other, related fields where such standards already exist. Faced with the unique challenge of combining two worlds – electronics and textiles – with often very different materials, properties and requirements, those standards often fail to meet E-Textile specific needs. This situation resulted in the efforts to establish the standard IPC 8981 Quality and Reliability for E-Textiles Wearables, starting back in 2019 with the goal of completing the standard by the end of 2022.

This webinar took place on Wednesday 23rd March 2022 at 13.30 pm (GMT).
