Durable, Flexible, High Performance

Utilizing Liquid X’s proprietary ink technology, manufacturers can print circuitry directly onto a garment, add Powercast’s wireless power technology and a battery, and seal this all into the garment during the manufacturing process.

Antenna and circuitry printed directly onto the textile

Circuitry is printed on the fabric using Liquid X’s proprietary particle-free ink, including Powercast’s RF wireless receiving antenna. Next, Powercast’s Powerharvester® RF wireless power receiver chip, a battery, and other components are mounted onto the printed traces.  An encapsulant then provides a high strength waterproof bond to seal in all of the electronics.

Simpler integration

Today’s smart garments often snap electronics onto the garment along with battery packs that users must detach before washing.  With the combined technologies of Liquid X and Powercast, now manufacturers can integrate the electronics directly into the garment.
