Arduino enthusiasts looking to incorporate Nixie Tubes in their next project may be interested in a new Arduino Nixie Tube SHIELD which has been created by Marcin Saj based in Poland.
The Arduino Nixie Tube SHIELD makes adding tubes to your project much easier and allows you to create projects such as clocks, thermometer, tube tester, reminders, counters and more.
With Nixie Tube SHIELD for Arduino you can bring to life any Nixie Tubes and use with your projects! The Nixie Shield is a modular circuit board that piggyback onto your Arduino to install it with extra functionality. Shield have the same form-factor as the standard Arduino. The Nixie Shield allows an Arduino board to connect any nixie tube you want to use in your projects.
To use the shield, mount it on top of an Arduino board, then mount any nixie socket (with nixie tube) on top of the nixie shield. To upload sketches to the nixie “sandwich”, connect it to your computer with a USB cable as you normally would. Once the sketch has been uploaded, you need connect 12V external power supply and voila. The Nixie Shield have extra functionality – external pins. All Arduino pins are available for use with different modules, breadboards (connected by jumper cables). You can use these pins with your projects.
The Arduino Nixie Tube SHIELD is now available to back via indigo go with pledges starting from $25 and shipping expected to take place during December 2017.
