Title (EN) ANISOTROPIC CONDUCTIVE THREADS FOR ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS IN SOFT ELECTRONICS
(FR) FILS CONDUCTEURS ANISOTROPES POUR CONNEXIONS ÉLECTRIQUES DANS DES CIRCUITS ÉLECTRONIQUES SOUPLES
Abstract:
(EN) An embroidery machine with on-board electronics executing layout and alignment software provides for automated thread installation to establish textile-to-pad contact through the use of anisotropic conductive threads characterized by electrically conductive segments alternating with electrically insulating segments. Present embodiments provide for garments or other fabrics and textiles having flexible circuits integrated on a flexible substrate that bends and moves with the garment in a way not seen with stiff printed circuit boards, which may include multiple textile circuits attached to fabric to impart desired electronic features including connectivity to a printed circuit board external to a garment formed according to the present embodiments, as well as imparting electrical conductivity across seams of a garment sewn together from fabric, while maintaining electrical integrity of neighboring circuits on the same garment.
(FR) Selon l'invention, une machine à broder avec une électronique intégrée exécutant un logiciel de disposition et d'alignement permet l'installation automatisée de fil pour établir un contact textile-plot grâce à l'utilisation de fils conducteurs anisotropes caractérisés par des segments électriquement conducteurs alternant avec des segments électriquement isolants. Des présents modes de réalisation concernent des vêtements ou d'autres tissus et textiles comportant des circuits flexibles intégrés sur un substrat souple qui se courbe et se déplace avec le vêtement avec une apparence impossible pour des cartes de circuit imprimé rigides, qui peut contenir de multiples circuits textiles fixés à du tissu pour conférer des caractéristiques électroniques souhaitées telles que la connectivité à une carte de circuit imprimé externe à un vêtement formé selon les présents modes de réalisation, ainsi que conférer une conductivité électrique au passage de coutures d'un vêtement cousu à partir du tissu, tout en maintenant l'intégrité électrique de circuits voisins sur le même vêtement.
