Nixie clock CMOS/TTL – real time, single board

@Blog 02 May 2023

Not a line of code in sight!

Time has come to design a new improved version of my real time CMOS/TTL Nixe Clock - this time on single PCB which should be a centre piece and/or talking point.
WIP – features are not summarized, components on board are not complete

... but if you feel like getting something for nothing isn't your cup of tea (completely understandable) (ಥ﹏ಥ) and a prefer to support me and get something back in return, then you can purchase this item directly from my on my Tindie shop (click on logo above). However if you are still up for an adventure */in very positive way/ (and are happy to have PCB's made yourself in your favourite PCB house - PCBWay is recommended), then carry on and download gerber files further down. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I sell on Tindie
