Wearable electronics and smart textiles is rapidly developing area currently. An integration of electronic components and systems directly on/into textile substrates leads to the development of promising new technologies among which it is possible to include printing of passive electronic components and/or embroidering of passive electronic components directly onto textile substrates using conductive threads.
The paper deals with comparing of the electrical parameters of printed and embroidered planar passive electronic components. Different types of planar inductors and interdigital capacitors were designed and realized. Their basic electrical parameters such as nominal values and resonance frequencies were measured and compared each other. Presented results can be used for the realisation of functional printed or embroidered components and systems designed not only for smart textiles.
