Question 12 talks a bit about the subject: www.nixieclocks.de/english/faqs.html
Can you guys provide any additional information or references about the impact of multiplexing on tube life? I haven't found much info on this on the web.
I've seen some sites (including same FAQ linked above) that claim increased tube life I think primarily due to the reduced average power/brightness that can be (often unintentionally) achieved. I haven't really found any technical or specification sources that discuss this.
