Welcome to ArduiNIX.com! 
The ArduiNIX shield is a user programmable platform for driving multiplexed Nixie tube, Vacuum Fluourescent displays* or other high voltage displays**.

*Driving Vacuum Fluourescent Displays requires modding the kit by changing the timing capacitors of your kit to a larger capacitance to lower the output voltage for the VFD of your choice.
**The ArduiNIX requitres a 9v DC power supply, not included. Arduino is not included.

News you can use!

June 24, 2009 - Master parts list published on the "about us" Section and the forums. From time to time we may change the master parts list due to availability of parts, changes in buildout for more efficiency, voltage requirements, etc., so check there often.

June 22, 2009 - Public announcement! Also, we got the forums back up and running, come join us there and help fill them out with projects, questions, comments, suggestions, etc.

And we are currently working on the HTML version of the assembly instructions for those of you with non flash enabled browsers.

April 15, 2009 - BACK IN BUSINESS!! - We have reassembled our team and have begun ramping back up on the Arduinix. In the process, we are moving the forums around and doing some general housekeeping on the sites. Keep checking back for updates!

October 24, 2008 - Our First Sale! - The first ArduiNIX kit is bagged up and mailed out toour first customer, and he reports it's working great!. Also, we sent an evaluation kit to the fine folks at MAKE magazine.

October 18, 2008 - MAKER Faire! We had an absolutely awesome time at Maker Faire Austin. We showed off the ArduiNIX and got some great feedback, looking forward to pursuing some opportunities that presented themselves. Special Thanks to Windell over at EvilMadScientistLabs.

July 4, 2008 - Assembly instructions go online! This little robot will help us assemble an ArduiNIX kit step by step, with tips and tricks to get your shield up and running! You'll need the latest Flash plugins for your browser.

June 25, 2008 - The first build based on the new boards is working great! We've used ribboncable to ease assembly to the protoboard.

June 6, 2008 - ArduiNIX V1.0 boards arrive from China! Got to love the global marketplace! Big thanks to PCBCart for help with this project.
May 8, 2008 - ArduiNIX AN_01 Prototype is hot and ticking! We're using an Arduino Decemilia to control the tubes.

The ArduiNIX is a RobotPirate Project; a nonentity production in association with PlanetHowa
