enter image description hereI have a beautiful old itron DP95A4 tube that I would like to use as a small display to visualize some data. I suppose I'd need a driver and some sort of multiplexer, preferably used with an Arduino or similar.

Could anyone push me in a generel direction or did someone actually do something similar here?

Edit: Added picture as mentioned in the comments.

  • \$\begingroup\$ If you do a Google search on “vacuum fluorescent display arduino” you’ll find several successful hacks. A VFD is not the same as a “nixie” tube although both are encased in a glass bulb. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 2, 2021 at 23:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ Hello. Well I could only find projects where single large VFD tubes or modern versions have been used, not the kind I am looking at. Thanks. \$\endgroup\$
