The ATRG have published a new journal article on the wash testing of electronic yarns. The article ‘Wash Testing of Electronic Yarn‘, available here, covers the wash testing of copper wires within a knit braided sheath, E-yarns with embedded LEDs, E-yarns that incorporate a flexible circuit board, temperature sensing E-yarns, and acoustic sensing E-yarns.

Results from the project were also recently presented at the 27th International Molecular Med Tri-Con in San Francisco earlier in the month. The poster, entitled ‘The Design and Development of Electronic Textiles for Health Monitoring Applications‘ included recent work on the automated soldering of semi-conductor devices onto thin copper wires.
