IN-12 (SK-136 socket) One Tube Clock Adapter

2 layer board of 0.95 x 1.45 inches (24.1 x 36.8 mm).
Shared on January 29th, 2018 03:31

An IN-12 adapter for my one-tube Nixie clock. These tubes have 1mm pins that plug in to a socket. This board is intended to use female D-SUB pins as a ‘socket’. These are often listed on eBay as ‘1mm tube socket pins’.

It will also work with other tubes that have the same pin layout such as the B5991, CD25, CD43, ZM1100 and many more.

The board includes pads for a neopixel and for a current limiting resistor.

One Tube Nixie Clock

2 layer board of 2.76 x 2.76 inches (70.1 x 70.1 mm).
Shared on January 29th, 2018 03:27

This is a one-tube Nixie clock - see my web site for more info.

One Tube Clock

Features include:

  • Any Nixie tube can be driven using an adapter (several on here at OSHPark).
  • It is driven by an ESP8285, so it has built-in WiFi.
  • It is powered from a USB port.
  • KiCAD project is on GitHub
  • It can be programmed through the USB - source code is available on GitHub.
  • It has an I2C expansion port.
  • It has a light sensor for auto-dimming.
  • The default application:
    • Synchronizes the time with the internet
    • Presents a web configuration GUI
    • Has five presets for easy switching between different configuraions
    • Has a blanking period
    • Can drive a tube either as a clock, or a counter
    • HV can be modified from the GUI to increase the current through the tube.
    • You can control the backlighting
