Update on the Cogwheel Nixie Shield..

First batch of shield boards have arrived back from Seeed Studio. It was my first order with them. I selected free shipping and it took exactly 30 days to arrive.

There are a couple of new features –

  • Non-volatile clock with battery back-up, so you can make your a proper clock which keeps time when power is off
  • Pads for optional larger inductor which will allow larger tubes to be driven.

I’ll be stuffing one up for test and handing it over to my assembler. Once I have a batch ready to sell, I’ll send out a notice. Watch this space.

Will probably switch to black boards after this initial run.
