Products Desciption

VFD Modular Clock IV-18 SMT is a clock based on old-fashioned VFD Display Tubes.

VFD is short for Vacuum Flourescent Display. A VFD display is typically green or blue, and emits a bright light with high contrast. VFD Displays are often found in car radios.

A VFD Display tube looks like an old Vacuum Tube, the predecessor to the transistor. The inside of the tube contains segments that can be lit up to form numbers and letters. Most tubes contain segments for one digit, and several must be stacked together to make a complete display.

VFD Modular Clock IV-18 SMT edition is a special solder-free kit version of the original VFD Modular Clock . The kit comes with all electronics pre-soldered, but you still assemble the enclosure yourself.
