Limpkin has published a new build: a high voltage power supply for Nixie tubes For quite a while I’ve had this project idea in the back of my head that would involve using many Nixie tubes. These funny looking cold cathode displays were actually introduced during the 1950s and unfortunately need quite a high voltage […]
The driver module for the nixi pile is working great. Counting 0 to 9 using a Arrrrduino to clock out bits to a 74hct595. The 8 outputs of the 595 drive two k1551-whatever Russian Nixie driver chips. The Arrrrduino will be replaced with a higher speed chip so a string of modules is easy to […]
Nixie tube supply is working great at 180 volts and 12k anode resistor.
Didn’t design our own. Used great open source SMPS from desmith.net. 180v from 12 volts out of the atx break board in handsome new case. Design uses max1771 from maxim. Sorry – posted from WordPress Android app. Fixed the picture.
More deliveries. Solder is slinging. Workshop video in a few.
