Interfacing Dekatron Tubes to a Microcontroller

Posted March 27, 2012 by Chris

“In this tutorial, I’m going to show how to interface a Dekatron tube to a Parallax Propeller microcontroller. This is similar technique to what I used in the Packetron-9000 project, although in that project I used mosfets. MPSA42 transistors are much cheaper and a lot easier to interface.”
