Nixie Clock | 3/16 Progress Report

Nixie Update! I’ve received all my components in the mail, and need to schedule a few hours in the electronics lab to start soldering. Some sweet photos:

Nixie Tube! I love the look of these. I haven’t seen them fired up yet, but I can’t wait!

 

Blank Nixie Board

Empty board! This will be split down the middle, and then all the parts (a LOT of them) will be soldered to it.

This is why I need to make sure I fully understand what’s going on before I start soldering… a casual 170v just hanging out next to the 5v line.

My schedule says I need to be finalizing my enclosure design this week… so lots to do. Senior Design is culminating this week in a massive testing week with our client, so I’m thinking I’m going to be a little behind… but my schedule should allow for me to catch up next week!

    The Nixie tube looks cool, can’t wait to see the final product! Hopefully you can find some time to work on it in the coming weeks. If you need help with electronics I recommend seeing Pat in the Idea Forge. He’s usually not as busy as Dan or Tim in the ITLL
