The Akafugu Nixie Clock

Firmware for The Akafugu Nixie Clock.

The Akafugu Nixie Clock is a fun to build stylish clock kit that uses old-fashioned neon Nixie tubes.

See the product page for more information.

Compiling

There are two revisions of The Akafugu Nixie Clock available. Version 1 and version 2.

Before compiling, you must set the type of clock you have by editing global.h

Look in the beginning of the file:

// define the type of board we are compiling for // The Akafugu Nixie Clock (http://www.akafugu.jp/posts/products/nixie/) //#define BOARD_STANDARD // Diet Nixie board (http://www.akafugu.jp/posts/products/diet_nixie/) //#define BOARD_DIET // The Akafugu Nixie Clock mk2 (http://www.akafugu.jp/posts/products/nixie/) //#define BOARD_MK2

Uncomment the #define line containing the board you are compiling for.

Programming

To reprogram the device, remove the display board and insert an FTDI adapter into the header on the left hand side of the control board (marked GNC, CTS, VCC, TXO, RXI, DTR). You will need to remove the enclosure to access the header. To use the header without removing the Display board, you will need to attach jumper cables or an angled female header with long legs first.

The microcontroller comes with a built-in bootloader for 8MHz internal clock.

If you are using the Akafugu Arduino package, you can select "Akafugu Nixie Clock", otherwise, open your hardware/arduino/boards.txt file (found inside the directory where you installed Arduino, or on OS X by selecting "Show Package Contents".

Add the following to the end of boards.txt

nixieclock.name=Akafugu Nixie Clock

nixieclock.upload.protocol=arduino nixieclock.upload.maximum_size=30720 nixieclock.upload.speed=57600

nixieclock.bootloader.low_fuses=0xe2 nixieclock.bootloader.high_fuses=0xD8 nixieclock.bootloader.extended_fuses=0x05 nixieclock.bootloader.path=atmega nixieclock.bootloader.file=ATmegaBOOT_168_atmega328_pro_8MHz.hex nixieclock.bootloader.unlock_bits=0x3F nixieclock.bootloader.lock_bits=0x0F

nixieclock.build.mcu=atmega328p nixieclock.build.f_cpu=8000000L nixieclock.build.core=arduino nixieclock.build.variant=standard

Now select "Akafugu Nixie Clock" in the Boards menu.
