The first prototype of my Linear PCB motor has 12 coils. To simplify the electronics i have connected these in sets of 3, each having 4 coils in parallel for maximum current, and then in a delta configuration.

I am then using the STSPIN230 3-phase driver (available on the X-NUCLEO-IHM11M1 dev board) and controlling it with a DSPIC33EP128MC202-I/SP microcontroller.
