Powered by Arduino Uno ATmega328P - PU It was my first Arduino off board Project. Took About 1 month from Circuit design to completion. Use 18 high-voltage transistors and 4028 decoder, four IN-12B panel mount tube, 34063A boost-up converter, DS1307 Real time clock and LM35 temperature sensor Also has additional voltmeter display applications. Current_ Fixed an error that displayed temperature is a little bit higher. alarm mode also added. The idea continues to be upgraded in the future. For the production process, circuit diagrams and code can found in following address: http://blog.naver.com/sinu8361/220446408717 Video created with Vegas Pro 13... But... it's still seemed to need some practice... If you have interest on my projects or want more information about it, please visit my website http://blog.naver.com/sinu8361
For details, see http://tubetime.us/?p=249. You can find the OSH Park PCB order link here as well as the schematic and bill of materials. This device uses an LC resonant converter to boost a 3V coin cell up to approximately 160V which can be used to drive a Nixie tube. I used a very similar circuit to power my Nixie tube pendant.
RFToy is an Arduino-compatible microcontroller board for interfacing with radio frequency (RF) modules. It has a built-in ATmega328 mcu, USB-serial chip, Arduino bootloader, 128x64 OLED display, and three buttons. Use it to build any project involving RF modules.

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.

Look no further! We've put together this handy guide to help you pick the right microcontroller for your project.
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.
