Hi guys,

Does anyone know of someone who does a circuit board for a IV-18 vfd tube?

Could one of Ian’s vfd clock boards be made to work, or is it a whole new design that’s needed?

Thanks.

Funny you should say that, I have laid out a board for IN-18 tubes and am likely to offer it completely open source hardware and software.

Hi Ian,
the IV-18 (not IN-18) is a multiplexed 8 digit VFD tube, used e. g. in the Adafruit Ice Tube Clock.

Regards,
Torsten

Doh!

I read IN-18.

In that case, Akafugu. There's a review on the site from Manuel Avezdeo, who as you might know died a little while ago,

Thanks I will look into his board then.
I just wondered if your IV-12 board could be hacked somehow!

Been looking around today, and can’t find any boards for these tubes anywhere. And even though there are plenty of egale files for them around, I have no idea how to go about getting one made.

I'm probably going to move into more VFD boards soon, Nixies are getting too expensive for many people, and VFDs are still cheap.
