Cool VDF alarm clock…

Pt 2255
JustgotaNikonDSLR writes –

One of my electronic project. Custom build alarm clock. Two 4×20 VDF Display hooked on a PIC 18F8420 demo board. Added a keypad for easy setup. Entering data is better with lots of keys. One electronic project that i’m not too ashamed of showing. If you want more info on this, feel free to ask. Schematics and code is available.

Very cool!

  1. VFD.

  2. Probably not in French…! 🙂

  3. Sweet! I’ve always wanted a custom built alarm clock, actually. Maybe I should try building one similar to this one. Thanks for posting!

  4. alex, you could def take a ice tube clock and mod it. lots of hackers on the forum have made changes

  5. I was considering getting one (an Ice Tube Clock), but I prefer a display similar to this one. I don’t know, I’m probably just being picky. XP I’ll definitely look into it, though.

  6. you could always wire up a different VFD and use the ice tube to drive it. most of the ice tube is just dealing with VFD driving. then you can mod the code!
