Seg 1: Arduino an nixie tube

6.1 Problem presentation: how to use Arduino to control nixietube for displaying the digital number 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

In fact, Arduino is used to control nixie tube to show the digital number, which is the same to the control of many LEDs to display. By the different constitution of display of LEDs, we can get the different digital number. So, the key problem is to understand the polarity of nixietube or LED. This a very important problem in such experiment.

6.2 The required materials

The required materials is very similar to the experiment 5. Only the buzzer is altered into digital display, which can be shown in Figure 6-8.
