In a collaboration with DMM.make AKIBA we are bringing our popular kit soldering class to the beautiful new DMM.make AKIBA venue.
Come to the class and get hands-on help building our beautiful VFD Modular Clock kit. Many variants are available, and you can choose which one you want to make when you register.
We will provide the kit with all required parts. Soldering equipment and tools will also be provided.
Acrylic case is not included in the price, but we will provide cases for sale at the event.
While working on our upcoming non-solder VFD kit we wanted to use a PCI-express connector to connect the tube with the PCB. When we were ready to send our design to a PCB fab house, there was a lot of new vocabulary (bevel, gold fingers) that we needed to understand fully.
In our search we found the following blog over at Eurocircuits: http://www.eurocircuits.com/blog/40-Gold-plating-for-edge-connectors
