Abstract:

Development in the field of electronic circuit technology has resulted in the miniaturisation of radio transceiver integrated circuits. This gives the possibility of embedding radio transceivers directly into a garment. The product obtained (garment + electronic transmitter) can have new functions that significantly expand the basic functionality of textiles. To combine radio equipment with clothing, the electronic elements should be as flexible and lightweight as possible. The textile antennas that are being developed in many research institutions have constructions that combine high performance in radio communication together with a flexible and lightweight construction. The authors of this paper propose a vee-type textile antenna that can be used for wireless transmission in a 2.4 GHz band. The concepts of the electrical design of this antenna as well as the antenna structure and design methodology were discussed. The aim of this paper is to present textile materials and textile manufacturing technologies that were used for this design.
