According to the situation recognition of a basic limit of electronics expansion in silicon planar technology, one proposal based on a new technology completely different from planar structure is done here. The new concept of the technology is “textile structure” for integrated optoelectronic circuit. The background of the new concept is shown from some historical view point. The concept is also discussed as an opto-electronic united circuit and a “Clothes” level system from application-view point. Characteristics and elemental technology of the textile hybrid system are considered for future development of this concept. Several concrete compositions and characteristics of the proposed system are compared with those of present technology to construct a new electronics system. This proposal is also discussed in flexible electronics concept.
