Developers, hobbyists and makers interested in creating projects using Nixie tubes, might be interested in a new driver board which is being created by Doayee based in the UK and provides an easy way to implement a 6-digit RGB backlit Nixie Tube display into any project.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn how the Nixie Tube Driver can help you create any Nixie Tube project using an the accompanying Arduino library.
The Nixie Tube Driver from Doayee is a convenient and easy way to implement a 6-digit Nixie Tube display into any project of yours. It supports IN12A/B and IN15A/B tubes, allowing for use with decimal points and symbols, allowing for a huge breadth of applications.
The driver uses the HV5122 from Microchip and is intended for use with a library and a microcontroller, and we have written a library which you can download from our website. See below to find out more about the possibilities for development. The board also features a high power RGB LED backlight behind each tube, for added visual aesthetic. These can be programmed in any way you wish, should that be a rainbow colour fade loop or as one block colour.
The Nixie Tube driver is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from just £32 and delivery expected to take place during March 2018. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
