Company History

Woven Company HistoryWoven Electronics emerged from the textile industry in 1963 with a unique idea of weaving circuits, during a time when the printed circuit board was only 2 dimensional – one layer.

Using fiberglass to weave silver-plated wire, the Woven Circuit, called WOCIR allowed the designer to convert a schematic into an X-Y matrix, replicating a multi-layer board that was flexible and compact. This technological discovery is the basis for much of Woven’s current eTextile design, and the innovative thinking that led to this exciting product has been the key to Woven Electronics’ success.

From that beginning, Woven determined that weaving of wire provides the best means of organizing interconnects, and in addition can be designed to provide abrasion resistance, shielding and mechanical strength to harness assemblies. Weaving also creates a natural sinusoid, mimicking the configuration of twisted pair and allowing for control of crosstalk and impedance. Woven personnel are equally adept at using conventional round cables for specific environments and integrating EMI shielding and backshells.

Woven Electronics has evolved into a resource for our customers to use for interconnect, backshell and connector design and manufacturing. Woven has also developed a remarkable suite of perimeter security products called LightLOC. Woven Electronics is a B/E Aerospace Company.
