The Numitron Clock Course

Skill Level:  Intermediate / Advanced

Learn and understand how to use IV9 numitron tubes, a RTC clock module and shift registers to create a clock. The numitron IV9 tubes are an inexpensive way to create a nixie style clock.

What you will learn

In this project you will learn how to link the IV9 numitron tubes to your Arduino Pro Mini using shift registers. You will also learn how to use a Real Time Clock (RTC) breakout board. You will learn how to set and read the time. In this project you will also learn how to use volt regulating hardware and write complex functions.


To be able to complete this course you need to have an Intermediate understanding of bread-boarding, and soldering, Intermediate understanding of Arduino programming structures, Intermediate understanding of Arduino variable, and data types. 

Price: $350.- (Minimal 7 hours classroom) Unlimited Email support is available for the durations of the course. (Materials not included)
