These 1.3mm thin compact PCB coils have an integrated driver (so no extra DriveCells required) so it can be connected directly to your favorite microcontroller to control the coil's polarity & drive strength which can magnets on-top dance, jump, and flip!

Share the power of up to 10 Cells together!

Eliminate some wires by daisy chaining the cells. Just solder all the VDD & GND pads to power up to 10 cells at once. The other IN1 & IN2 pads can be either shared by soldering the pads together or uniquely customized with separate wires.

The 5-Cell option, makes it even easier as the VDD & GND are already connected inside the board. So it will only require the IN1 & IN2 signals. Each cell can also be separated from its neighbours.

Notes:

  • The CoilCell is a planar PCB coil with an on-board DRV8837 h-bridge chip. It has 2 input pins which are typically driven in opposite polarities, to control the direction and strength of the current flowing throught the coil. This allows the CoilCell to be driven magnetic north (IN1 = PWM, IN2 = GND), south (IN1 = GND, IN2 = PWM) or OFF (IN1 = GND, IN2 = GND)
  • The DRV8837 chip has Overcurrent Protection, Undervoltage Lockout & Thermal Shutdown. Caution must be taken not to reverse its supply rails.
  • This electronics kit is ROHS Compliant & follows IPC-A-600 II standard.
  • The force produced by a CoilCell depends on the mechanical elements of your project, as well as the weight and strength of your magnet.
  • The box will include the CoilCell, a set of four M1.2 screws and any optional magnets.
  • Any soldered wires must be non-magnetic to prevent magnets from attaching to them.
  • Please note that the CoilCell is intended to be used as a DIY maker kit. For commercial purposes, please get in touch.
