DIY bare boards for Nixie Clock on IN-14 Tubes.

Project “Divergence Meter” has modular system, so you can build clock with 6 [hours : minutes : seconds] Nixie tubes. For clock with 4, 6 or 8 tubes You need one MCU boards NCM107/NCM109 and one Tubes board NCT4XX and .NCT3XX

PCB design, schematic, housing and software made by GRA & AFCH

Kit includes MCU (microcontroller unit) ATmega328p flashed with Arduino Uno Bootloader and sketch (Firmware).

Kit compatible with Arduino Uno, so it allows you to write your own unique programs on the Arduino platform, the latest sources are always available on GitHub.

If You want, You can buy assembled boards

Lot contains bare PCBs (without any parts and tubes) and include flashed microcontroller (ATmega328p):

  • MCU board: NCM10X* – 1 pc. (see selector on top)
  • Tubes board: NCT4XX or NCT3XX – 1 pc. (see selector on top)
  • Flashed microcontroller ATmega328p with Arduino bootloader and NixieClock sketch firmware – 1 pc.
  • User manual on vitage-style paper – 1 pc.
  • Paper electrical scheme – 2 pcs.

*If You want build your own CUSTOM nixie tubes clock, You may buy only MCU PCB. The MCU board support a variety of tubes, such: ZM1042, Z522M, Z566M, Z5220M, ZM1040, Z5660M, B566M, LC-631, IN-14, IN-18, IN-12, IN-8, IN-7, IN-1, IN-2, IN-4, IN-8, IN-15, IN-16, IN-17. To use this tubes You need appropriate tubes PCB(s).

Dear customers!
If you have ANY questions, PLEASE ASK us.

Software Features:

  • Clock support many kinds of Nixie tubes (6 tubes [hh:mm:ss] format and 4 tubes [hh:mm]).
  • 12/24 hour format.
  • Date format: DD:MM:YY
  • Slot-machine
  • Unique RGB LEDs backlight with 16,7 millions colors.
  • Very easy to switch LEDS off/on.
  • As alarm sound clock uses standard RTTTL (Nokia format) melodies, so You can easy change it. (included songs: mission impossible, we wish you).
  • Easy updating firmware via USB using Arduino IDE.
  • Software based on Arduino sketch, so MCU has Arduino bootloader within.
  • Power On Self Test (POST): LEDs test, tubes test, input voltage test, sound test.

Hardware Features:

  • Integrated High Voltage Power supply 150 – 220V.
  • ICSP connector for flashing Arduino Bootloader to blank MCU.

  • Test points for testing, adjust and control low and high voltage circuits.
  • Pads for internal buttons and terminals for external buttons.
  • Pads for internal USB connector and terminals for external USB.
  • Terminals for internal and external power connector.
  • Terminals for external and internal buzzer.
  • 2 dots column with separate controls upper and lower dots.
  • Power consumption: 11-14V, 360mA (Recommended power source: voltage 12V, current 1-2A).
  • MCU board NCM10X has world smallest size: 100mmx50mm.
  • Tubes board NCT4XX size: 200mmx50mm.
