In this paper, we present the development of a wire component suitable for direct integration to the textile during weaving. The components are used for the development of electronic textiles and wearable smart clothing prototypes. First, a 3D-printed adapter suitable for prototyping is discussed. The method focuses on attaching SO-8 chip to the conductive yarns on the surface of a knitted or woven textile. Second, a wire component processor is built, and an electronic textile developed. Finally, the problems of the electronic textiles are discussed.
