Re: Atomic clock receiver for PIC?

The first unit you mention has apparently been discontinued. The second isn't cheap at $179! I noticed that Atmel has two chips (T4227 & U4223B link: http://www.atmel.com/atmel/products/prod515.htm) that will recieve WWVB signals, but not much info seems to be available, plus they seem to be European.

Help figuring out PS for unusual Power Req.

I am currently working on a little project that involves controlling vintage old display tubes (dekatrons and nixie's together) with a PIC. What I am trying to figure out is how to build an appropriate power supply to meet the voltages of the tubes and the PIC/CMOS voltages. Here are the power requi...

Re: Metal Enclosures

Thanks for the input. I had already contacted Zero for some information, wasn't sure how much they were going to charge for their stuff, particularly for only a couple units.
