E-textiles aim to integrate enhanced functionality into ordinary fabric materials. This is often through the development of the material itself to have specific properties, such as hydrophobic or heat resistance, or by adding electronic functionality as part of the initial fabrication or during some form of post processing. At the University of Southampton we have taken the approach of combining the thousand year old art of graphical screen printing with the modern development of printed electronics to create electronic functionality on to any textile either before or after it has been made into a garment. This approach allows for much greater design freedom as the designs are not limited to orthogonal shapes and the location on the fabric is not limited by the weaving process.

In this presentation we will report on the latest devices we have printed including the first all screen printed electroluminescent watch display on fabric, an all inkjet printed dipole antenna and an all screen printed motion sensor using sacrificial MEMS based techniques
