What is a Nixie?

Numeric Indicator eXperiment or nixie tube is a gas discharge device. Their color and working voltage are determined by the properties of the neon gas within. They ignite at 140-170 V, slightly varying by type. Once ignited, their resistance is very low so a series resistor is necessary to limit the current, typically to 1-5 mA. The working voltage is 90-130 V depending on type. If the voltage drops below the turn-off voltage, the nixie will go out.

what we need to do

Build a motherfucking power supply and nixie driver

Nixie group buy is OVER, if enough people want more I'll order more These nixie tubes display numbers from 0 to 9 and decimal point.

specs Size of the tube: 0.84“ x 1.24” x 1.04“ (21 x 31 x 26mm) Size of the numericals: 0.71” x 0.47“ (18mm x 12mm)
