Numitron Clock & Thermometer

Developed on the Arduino platform

Numitron Clock & Thermometer
The idea for this project was to take the Arduino world off of its Shields and Breadboards and out into a world of Elektor DIY projects while also hopefully appealing to the diehard AVR hackers. These worlds are so close but are so often treated as separate. The project happily combines today’s microcontroller technology with 1950’s Soviet tubes now available ‘NOS’ from Ebay.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
