Abstract: This paper investigates the concept of using conductive threads for fabricating electronics including antennas at microwave frequencies. A number of commercial conductive threads have been considered. Digital embroidery has been used to create samples with different stitch types. This paper will provide a wide range of practical advice about fabricating samples using such materials. The threads have been examined by assessing their DC resistances at rest and while under physical strain and also the RF performance of transmission lines. The results show there is a wide range in performance between different conductive threads.
