The Nixie Tube
The design and control of Nixie tubes
There is no doubt Nixie tubes are once again trendy. No other display technology has quite the same character. The fact that we are unlikely ever to see these devices in consumer products (unless production restarts) makes their use in a one-off design special. If you are planning to add the Nixie coolness factor to your next home brew design we give details of their operating principle, power supplies and practical advice on driving the tubes. To inspire you a collection of fascinating reader’s projects has been included.
