Nixathing

Nixie clocks have been all the rage in the electronics hobby for the past several years. I had a student, Jordan Easter, design and make one when I was teaching at Surry Community College, and it turned out great. (He did it all using perf board, Yikes!) It had been on my to-do list for some time to make one myself, but it seemed I could never find the time to get around to it even though I had already stocked plenty of Nixie tubes in preparation for it.

When I set out to design the clock, I determined that I want to have these features:

  • Time
  • Date
  • Temperature
  • Pressure
  • Humidity
  • Programmable User Values
  • Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity

I will finish this post in the future and discuss the design of various parts of the circuit. In the meantime, design files are linked below.

I work in the semiconductor manufacturing industry by day, and I enjoy working on electronics projects by night. I started this blog so that I could document the projects I'm working on and what I may have learned along the way.
