exixe are easy-to-use driver modules for IN-12 and IN-14 Nixie tubes. It aims to simplify Nixie tube related projects by eliminating the need for vintage driver chips and multiplexing circuits.
Instead, you can control every digit and the RGB backlight via SPI using only 3 wires and 1 line of code. As featured on a Hackaday article.
exixe is small and modular for easy integration. It is compatible with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and virtually all embedded dev boards today. A ready-to-use Arduino library is provided.

This listing does not include the Nixie Tubes. You need to source some tubes and a high voltage power supply to go with the exixe modules, click me for details.
The price is for a single exixe module without tubes plus male header:
The boards will be tested before shipping, and typically you need 4 or 6 if you want to build a clock.
exixe modules might also work with other tubes apart from IN-14 and IN-12. Here's a short guide I wrote about this topic.
