Anyone here know if I can mount magnets close to IC chip's?

Anyone here know if I can mount magnets close to IC chip’s? I have a application in a aquarium that a couple magnets would be the best application to position some ws2812b leds. Anybody ever done this? I have always been weary with magnets and sensitive electronics.

I second that. I used to design MRI systems and none of my electronics was ever bothered by the very high magnetic fields (up to 4T), not even from the gradient coils. We did shield against the RF however, but that’s another story.

Thanks guys. I did a few tests using different sizes and types of magnets I had laying around as well as different IC driver chips. Nothing was ever effected. I figured I ask if it couldn’t be done before I fried pixels going in blind. Thanks again
