MSP430 Nixie Clock

Recommended Posts

Got home a while ago to find the kit waiting for me.

@@RobG - very nice!!!! Very much looking forward to putting this together, maybe with some help from my nephew.

Oh, and you sent me two extra Nixie socket pins. Want them back? :ph34r:

Thanks @@RobG I assumed that was the reason for the additional pins. Was just trying to make a funny.

 

The warning about high voltage is much appreciated- I've been bit by 240v before- not fun.

@@RobG - Finished building it earlier, didn't get shocked to death fortunately, and it worked 'a charm' when powered up.

 

I'm wondering, though, what the header connected to P1.0 was intended for...?

@@RobG - Before I say much more, I will say I love the clock, my wife likes but is confused about it... and that's her prerogative- some people just don't get it :)
 
May I suggest for a future revision that when in 12 hour mode disable the 'backlight' LED for the first digit when the time is 1-9?

Yes, it took me 30 minutes to compose this. :)
Got distracted by some other things.

For those who want to customize.

I have noticed that over the past weeks, the clock has lost about 2 minutes per week. Before diving into the code, is there anything you can suggest?
