Changes in the Characteristic Impedance of Textile Signal Lines While Mechanically Loaded

Open access


The paper presents studies over the changes in the characteristic impedance of selected type of textile signal lines (TSLs) during mechanical loads. The article describes the construction of tested lines, the measurement method, and statistical analysis of the collected results.
