On the surface, both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi look like the same thing: inexpensive controller boards for electronics projects. Support on Patreon: http://patreon.com/baldengineer However, one is a simple 8-bit controller while the other is a 32-bit single board computer. Understand how an Arduino and Pi are different and which to use in your project. Web: http://addohms.com/ep7 Twitter: @addohms #arduino #raspberrypi #electronics
Help Support Fran's YouTube Channel on Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/frantone In this short vlog I go over the differences between Nixie tubes and Vacuum Florescent Displays. These displays often get lumped together but they are very different, and not to be confused with each other. I also give a nod to Dave Jones who is the current caretaker of the LVDC board. You can watch the Mailbag episode where Dave unboxes the board here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCRHGr0RfkM Donate to help fund my YouTube Channel at http://www.frantone.com Fran on Twitter - https://twitter.com/contourcorsets Fran's Science Blog - http://www.frantone.com/designwritings/design_writings.html Fran's Daily Updates - http://www.contourcorsets.com/daily/daily.html

Here we see how to make a nixie tube that has letters that spell out a name. This takes a slightly different approach because the letters are all in the same plane. When I was making the pinch seal I forgot to turn on the camera so to see making a pinch seal see one of the other videos in my collection. Also see my website "tubecrafter.com" for more tube making info.

AA battery driveable QS30-1 NIXIE Module for Arduino / AVR / PIC / STM / ARM /PI V1.0.
Module Supply: 2V~7V DC;
Max Current: 150mA;
The module works with 2 AA batteries (in serial),and also works with any standard USB power supply,use only high-quality adapter!
1).Very small size module,only 38mm*38mm,fits for a lot of tiny EE works;
2).Wild supply range,works fine with any 5V USB powered ARDUINO or other 5V/3V3 MCUs ,easy to be used. For driving less than 5 modules together,can connect to your computer's USB plugs directly.(For working under 3V,the Blue/Green LED may not be able to light up,but the NIXIE tube and red led work fine).
3).High effenciency design,low current. Usually one module needs only about 100mA current under 5V DC supply, so for 1~8 modules can be drived together via regular Dupont Line.For driving over 4 modules together,recommand you using a 5V/1A USB adapter.
4).Module contains a self testing switch,when press the test key down,the NUM-"8" will light up,easy for tesing the module.
5).74HC595 driving chips,simple 3-wire SP I interface,with /OE and HVEN pins,can adjust the global brightness via PWM signal and shutdown the High Voltage completely.
6).Contains over-current protection, and reverse connection protection circuits.
7).With 2 dots on the right and left side,you can create not only the NIXIE clock app but also the "Divergence Meter" from the Steins' Gate style looking with 8 modules.
8).Open source ARDUINO NUO source code,provide high level nixie_printf() function,easy to be used,can control the left and right dots in this function either.
9).We provide extra 1PCS acrylic back board for connecting 2,4,6,8,10 modules together for free.
10).Tri-colored RGB LED mounted under the NIXIE tube.
11).Beautiful CAD designed acrylic casemade using a laser cutter makes the module look beautiful. You can assamble/disassamble the case by using only 4 screws on the bottom/top of the case.
