  • Publication number: 20210350978
    Abstract: A coil structure includes metal plates each including a spiral conductor, and a row of terminals, aligned in a predetermined direction on an outer side of the conductor, and formed by plate portions thicker than the conductor. Two ends of the conductor are connected to two adjacent plate portions for each metal plate. The row of terminals of a first metal plate is bonded to the row of terminals of a second, adjacent metal plate. The position where the two ends of the conductor connect to the two adjacent plate portions shifts one place toward the second end for each upward increase in level within a laminate along a laminated direction of the metal plates, so that the conductors of each of the metal plates are connected in series to form a spiral coil.
