Magnet interaction

by theophile on Mon Apr 08, 2019 1:25 am

Hi,

For my project I would like to glue a magnet on my microcontroller (ESP8266 breakout). My project will be wearable.

Do you know if the proximity with a quiet strong small magnet (Neodynium) could affect components of my esp8266 ?
Is there any magnetic based electronics in a lipo / lipo charger / matrix backpack 8*8 and esp8266 ?
Could it affect the wifi transmission ?

Thanks,
Théo

A static magnetic field won't have much effect on the circuit.

Electrons in traces near the magnet will be pushed to one side of the trace (the Hall effect), but that shouldn't change the way anything works.
