Hi! I am designing a kitchen timer and I would like to use a couple of NL-8063 VFD 7-segment tubes that I have on hand. I have looked all over and I cannot find ANY data at all on these tubes. Does anyone have a datasheet for these or at least know the pinout as well as the voltage and current requirements? I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
Huh. I did a quick search of my normal sources and couldn't find much. Can you post a photo?
You should be able to find the filament with a basic continuity check. I'd start with less than a 1v supply for this. If we can find a similar sized tube from the same era you could probably get a pretty good idea of the electrical requirements are.
The remaining pins might require some extra luck to guess...
