The ArduiNIX is an Arduino compatible shield which plugs right onto the top of the Arduino** board. ArduiNIX takes care of stepping power from 9vDC - 12vDC 650mA wall wart* up to a maximum of approx. 250vDC to drive any and all Nixie tubes. ArduiNIX also provides Multiplexed display for up to 80 elements by using 4 anode channels and 20 cathode channels. Multiplexing increases the life expectancy of your nixie tube investment.
Not only does the ArduiNIX provide a nixie tube platform for standard
clock functions, but it is also user programmable, meaning if you can program it
using the arduino environment, you can make it happen on your nixie
