Folks,
Is there nixie tube model that can display alpha-numeric information (both letters and numbers) as opposed to numbers-only?
Thanks, Paul
P.S. Should have googled it first.

There is, but it's not yet available as a kit.

Hmm, this is interesting...
The answer I found was that there is not true nixies that can do both letters and numbers, and I read a quite long technical explanation as to why not. The recommended solution was to go with 14-segment VLDs.
I don't care about the kit, so if you can post the tube model number that would be awesome.
Thanks, Paul
