  • Built-in 4-Bit red digital tube display

    Not really.

    • Yes really. Tube as in tube style numerals, very commonly used term by Chinese sellers.

      • Well it's certainly no digital Nixie Tube.
        That is the usual use of the term Tube when describing digital tube displays in electronic kit construction here.

        • That would look kickass and I'd buy this in a hearbeat :)

          • @karankadam: There are Nixie Tube Clock kits available online. And fully made ones. Used to be sold at Jaycar etc. Were popular with kit builders.

            • @the INFIDEL: Nice! I recently completed a car voltage monitor and trying my hand with some more complex kits. I don't think Jaycar has Nixie Tube kits anymore at least I didn't see any when I was there a couple of months ago. I bought a few kits from ICStation, the only problem with these is that they come with 0 instructions. They're inexpensive compared to Altronics, Jaycar etc. though

              • @karankadam: car voltage monitor
                Guess that's a bar of different coloured LEDs to indicate voltage of battery. I've built that😃
                A good kit to start out with. LEDs are fun.

                The Nixie kits are for the more adventurous (high voltage I would assume).

                Long ago, I started building circuits around age 10, built a demonstration binary adder for my High School (switches to input binary numbers & lights to indicate binary answers) - used for years in teaching, before building a 8 bit 1KB RAM microprocessor around age 17.

                Kits are much easier! Enjoy!!


                Yes, bought from here but no instructions👎

        • Commenting here with responses to your other posts.

          Tube style numerals, as in nixie tube style numerals, as in segment number displays like this has. It's a very commonly used term on sites like AliExpress.

          That is the usual use of the term Tube when describing digital tube displays in electronic kit construction

          I am completely lost as to your implication as you're wrong about it being the usual use of the term (it refers to segment number displays like I said originally) but also "digital nixie tube" seems like an oxymoron to me? I've tried Googling to understand your reference but it mostly brings up digital alarm clocks with Nixie Tube (or imitation) displays.

          • @flopsy: Your comment is so hard to understand!

            The entire line "4-Bit red digital tube display" contains errors! It's meaningless garbage! As I explained.

            Where is any proof for your claim it refers to segment number displays?

            It certainly doesn't here & makes no sense! Googling mainly shows Nixie Tube displays!

            Why would a 7 segment digital display have the name "Tube" when there is no tube?

            You make out the use of "Tube" has nothing to do with the Nixie Tube display commonly referred to for decades as "Tubes"? That's what I know them as.

            They're called "Tubes" because they are made with an outer glass tube, like old valves. Valves were also referred to as "Tubes".

            The term "Tube" has a very long tradition in electronics!


            Just because a seller uses the incorrect technical term, and that is copied in other ads, doesn't make it correct!

            What's your imaginative explanation for the incorrect claim that it contains a 4-Bit display?? It certainly doesn't - it's a 4 digit display.

            So these merchants use "bit" rather than digit - and that must be taken as correct as other sellers make the same mistake?? (Checking - yes Chinese merchants incorrectly us 4-but when they mean 4 digit!)
            Come off it - they got that wrong as well!


            Nixie Tubes originated in1955 as the main digital display devices.

            And the 7 segment display design (you refer to as tube numerals in recent Chinese seller sites) dates from a patent in the 1910's!

            Nixie Tubes & building retro electronics with them became popular long before the Chinese sites referred to much more recent LED 7 segment Displays incorrectly as "Tubes".

            Strange as it seems only to you, Chinese sellers don't dictate the use of a term that has been in use since the 1950's. And a term loved by electronics constructors of a certain era.


            Just because you lack experience with & don't know about this long history of Nixie "Tubes" with electronic constructors - doesn't mean you rewrite the history of tube display devices to support its incorrect use.

            After all, this is a Deal for electronics constructors. And the Deal is listed on this Australian site. So the correct local terminology needs to be used.

            • @the INFIDEL: Easy to see how errors & mistranslations propagate on sites…

              Spellcheck Typo: "merchants incorrectly use 4- but bit when they mean 4 digit"


              Pity ads aren't checked as correct before selling in other languages.

              And here we are told the use of the word is correct - we need to change our usage of a word used here for decades to fit the advertisers!!

          • @flopsy: Was going to make this Nixie clock in 2007 - from a popular local electronics constructors magazine. It was retro & popular even then

            An actual 4-bit digit red digital tube display!!

            Notice the glass tubes, like old valves!
            Hence the name "Tube" for this type of digital display. The article refers to them as Tubes.

            Totally different to the modern LED digital display in this kit described as "4-Bit red digital tube display".
            That description is incorrect.


            Tube style numerals, as in nixie tube style numerals, as in segment number displays like this has.

            You said you had googled this…
            Again - wrong. Nixie Tubes, do not use segmented "Tube style numerals" you refer to! Each number in the Tube is lit separately as a whole number!

          • @flopsy: Tube is the shortened term for vacuum tube - an old electronic technology.

            Those include valves, devices such as Nixie Tube displays, Cathode Ray Tubes - in TVs, once referred to as The Tube, right up to current vacuum tube display devices such as vacuum fluorescent displays.

            That use of the term Tube has a very long history in electronics - but you deny this?

            The merchants you referred to seem to use the term Tube interchangeably in their ads between real Tube devices like vacuum fluorescent displays & non-tube devices - semiconductor LED Displays.
            They incorrectly refer to both as Tube display devices.

            Vacuum tubes & semiconductors are totally different devices. They are constructed very differently, based on very different technologies. But both can perform a similar function with different circuits required to drive them.

            It certainly has nothing to do with "Tube numerals" as you claim! You could provide no proof for your origin of the word. Just that those merchants referred to the devices as Tube displays.
            (I suggested a likely reason for their misuse of the term "Tube" above.)


            [CORRECTION]
            Unfortunately I was wrong about the use of the term 4-bit, as 4 bits are used to address the multiplexed displays. I've designed & built with circuits that predate these integrated displays - much more complex in those days. So should have known better. My posting when sleepy was not a good idea.
            Sorry!

          • @flopsy: "Tube" display describes the technology used in making the display - it requires a glass tube!

            Display devices encased in an evacuated glass tube (vacuum tube technology) are correctly called Tube displays. These can't operate without that Tube!

            The filaments are illuminated by electrons within the Tube - each tube is a triode vacuum tube

            Displays without that tube made from semiconductor LEDs are not called Tube displays - there is no glass tube needed to operate. Those are called LED Displays.

            They operate very differently as 7 separate LEDs per digit - using semiconductor diodes which emit light at lower voltage than Tube displays, arranged in a block of plastic.

            Those merchants & this Deal - incorrectly describe the LED display as a "Tube" display - when it isn't a vacuum tube display requiring a glass tube to operate.

      • 4-Bit red digital tube display

        Rather, this kit contains 4 red 7 segment LED Digital Displays - the correct term. I used to work for a semiconductor distributor, selling them.

        Nixie Tubes were the original digital display devices since 1955. Guess that's why some still call modern digital displays after them. Quaint!

        Same as the popular word Tube in the world of the media, originally refered to the Cathode Ray Tube - something we used to view the media, although that device is now mainly redundant.

  • is there a wired FM Radio Receiver ?

  • Love to get into this, led light kids always look great

  • “Clip the red wire, then the blue wire, then the yellow wire…”

  • Is this shortwave receiver? Can I get Chinese/Cantonese station (24 hours) with this radio?

    • No. It's only an FM radio - included already in most phones & radios.

    •  

      No. It is an FM ultra-short wave receiver with receiving frequency of 87MHz-108MHz.
      We are not sure if you could get the Chinese/Cantonese station, because it was related to your local station..

  • I've just started reading a book on electronics to gain a better understanding of the internals of our devices and how to diagnose problems, fix them, etc. Most people don't appreciate or understand the complexity of what makes our electronics work.
    Even the humble clock radio has so many different components and each one has a critical function to make the radio work.
    Fascinating stuff.

  • OP and anyone who is familiar - what would be a good first beginner kit? There are so many on the website
