Abstract

We describe a compact constant current power supply with µA precision designed to drive coils. The unit generates currents from −125 mA to 125 mA with a load up to 10 Ω using a precision 16-bit digital to analogue converter, driven from a microcontroller (e.g. Raspberry Pi Pico). All power for the unit is derived from the 5 V of the microcontroller. As a demonstration of the capability of the power supply, it was applied to spin manipulation in a helium spin echo system.
