Title: INS-1 Details
Post by: johncarl81 on January 21, 2012, 02:53:59 PM
I'm working on etching my own PCB for a nixie tube clock using the IN-12a and INS-1 components and have been using Kicad to draw the schematic for my clock with a lot of success.

My question is, does anyone have a Kicad compatible component schematic and footprint for the INS-1?  Or, is there a reasonable footprint to use instead?

Additionally, what resister should I be using with the ArduiNIX shield to drive the INS-1 neon tubes?

By the way, I have found Kicad schematics for the nixie tubes I have been playing around with here:

Thanks.

Answering my own question here.  Using a simple LED schematic footprint worked out nicely.
