This Arduino shield is capable of driving 4 Russian IV-3 7 segment VFD tubes. 4 3mm LEDs provide background lighting for the tubes.

The design is completely based on through hole components, no SMD components were used. As such, the PCB can easily be assembled by anyone who has some soldering experience. Also, the components used are cheap and easily available.

As this was designed as a more educational, easy to build project based on easily available components it is not the best possible solution to drive these VFD tubes from a technical point of view.
