A few weeks ago, I wrote about my plans to build a Nixie tube Anytime clock. Unfortunately Switchmode Design–from whom I purchased my first Nixie tube control board–has disappeared from Shopify. Having only acquired a single control board, this means I need to rethink my approach to controlling my Nixie tubes.
After some research, I’ve settled on using the exixe driver module from dekuNukem. I had originally thought these over-engineered, and had been hopeful of assembling my own solution, but on further consideration, they seem the pragmatic approach.
I will continue to use the original nixie tube as an opportunity to experiment with different approaches to wiring up the board and Raspberry Pi, and various case designs.
