The Textile Antennas and Electronics Lab hosts a high-end home-style Brother® embroidery machine for prototyping the e-fiber textile antennas and electronics. 

The machine has a maximum embroidery speed of 1050 stitches per minute (spm), and a USB port for conveniently importing textile patterns. 

More important, it allows for automatic embroidery. 

In addition, the lab has a casting device for making uniform polymer substrates.  Assembly of the e-fiber textiles and polymer substrates is also carried out in this lab.
