Chainable nixie board massive thing project

Postby ian » Thu Sep 13, 2012 10:56 am

Over the years we've amassed an assortment of Nixie and VFD tubes. They're cool devices, but mostly we hide them in the closet. Our magnificent nixie tube thing will put out tube hoard on display in the workshop, and we can take sections to Maker Faires too.

The Magnificent Nixie tube thing consists of 3 separate boards. A high voltage power supply, a chainable controller board for 2 nixies, and a carrier board that holds the delicate tubes.

The HV supply is from here:

Our Eagle files are attached. See the video and post here:
