IN-12 Nixie Breakout Board, Part 2
Oct 02, 2014 Filed in: Electronics | Nixies | PCBs
Rev 1 of my IN-12 Nixie Breakout Board
was an abomination. Upon realizing that the nixie footprint that I used for the PCB was completely wrong, I immediately re-spun the board.
OSH Park’s really been picking up the pace lately. I had these PCBs in a week.
Once again, the Thinking Putty was a lifesaver at holding the nixie nice and straight.
This was a quick 15-minute build. Rev 2 is definitely nicer than rev 1. It’s even a little bit smaller.
I connected the breakout to my breadboard and powered it up.
Boom. It works like a charm. I got it right this time. All ten digits light up when the corresponding pin is grounded on the 10-pin header.
OK, now I can start prototyping...See this project from start to finish: Nixies! Got My Nixies Powered! IN-12 Nixie Breakout Board, Part 1 Flashing a Nixie with an Arduino
