Driving two Nixie tubes with an Arduino via a shift register and two SN74141s

Nixie tubes are really cool looking and are becoming quite popular for their ‘retro’ look. Although there are a number of tutorials out there on using nixie tubes and some nice pre-packaged units (see these nice ones from ogi lumenand ArduiNIX) I hadn’t seen a simple tutorial on running them using a shift register like the SN74HC595. …

YABBAS – Yet Another Bare Bones Arduino (on Stripboard)

This Instructable will demonstrate the building of a bare bones (and really inexpensive… less than $5) Arduino compatible module that can be put together on a small piece of stripboard and can be used either on a breadboard or independently. The following links / similar projects were used as inspiration: * http://www.instructables.com/id/Small-form-factor-DIY-Arduino-on-stripboard/ * http://tinkerprojects.blogspot.com/2012/06/minimal-arduino-on-small-stripboard.html * http://shop.moderndevice.com/products/rbbb-kit * http://txapuzas.blogspot.com/2010/07/paperduino-stripboard.html The …

Arduino Prototyping Shield on the cheap

Breadboards are very handy, but sometimes I just want to connect one IC or some LEDs and resistors to the controller. My simple solution was to canibalize a cheap Breadboard to get two expandable PrototypingShields with some additional features. What I used: Breadboard (~3$) 2 Pieces of Veroboard (<1$) 28 PinHeader (<1$) 28 femaleConnectors (<1$) …
