Anotācija Smart textiles are an expanding field with much potential and arouse interest in the R&D sphere and industry. These find vast applications in engineering, healthcare and fashion, and contribute additional functionality and intelligence to structures. Quiet often the intelligence of such smart structures is supported by electronics that ensure functions such as data transfer and analysis for monitoring systems. Moreover, many smart textile systems require also energy source. At present, there is a great variety of scenarios to implement the joining of the functional textile compounds and electronics. Nevertheless, the joining technology is one the key challenges for smart textile developers, especially regarding wearable applications. Smart luminous textiles are of great interest for applications such as clothing and interior design and visual merchandizing. Moreover, luminous textiles are beneficial for protective clothing and sportswear in order to insure better visibility of the wear and interactive design for non-verbal communication. Additionally, luminous textiles have potentials for healthcare and medicine applications such as phototherapy. At present, such smart textiles are mostly limited to LED integration. Despite well-developed techniques for LED attachment onto textiles, power sourcing and controlling of the electronics for more complex LED matrixes remains a field for technology improvement. Moreover, OLED technology is more preferable for some applications due to fragility of more sophisticated and large-scale LED matrixes. This study presents a preliminary study for reversible joining of textiles and electronics within a novel concept for electroluminescence (EL) towards Organic Light Emitting Devices (OLED) implementations by printing technology. Technical embroidery is suggested as a promising technology that ensures continuous manufacturing of the functional textile compounds, electro-conductive paths and the joining platforms for electronic interconnections with active textiles. A novel concept for EL is developed in order to continuously implement the functional textile elements and ensure an efficient solution for the smart textile bonding with electronics. Regarding specifics of the development usage conditions, solutions for reversible joining are in the focus of the study. Finally, a concept of the bonding module for the electro-conductive platforms is described to be applied to custom developed EL structures on textiles.
