Prototyping PCBs

The Synovatron range of Eurorack compatible prototyping PCBs includes the Proto series and the DIY series.

The newer Proto series of PCBs includes ProtoPotz, ProtoJax and ProtoXp.


The older DIY series of PCBs includes DIY2 and DIY3.



Follow this link to the Eurororack DIY Prototyping Cards Retink post for full details of both series of PCBs.

4HPJ and 4HPP Front Panels

These panels have a limited stock status and will not be reordered once they've gone but for now they are available and are ideal for DIY2, DIY3 and ProtoJax PCBs.

Both panel types are 4HP (20mm) wide, 1.9mm thick, anodised brushed aluminium and have 5 holes for front panel components such as jacks, LEDs, switches and also 9mm pots (but those are not supported on the PCBs without a bit of 'fettling'). 

4HPP holes are 3mm diameter and 4HPJ holes are 8.2mm diameter. The 3mm holes are fine for small LEDs or can be drilled out to suit other components. The 8.2mm holes are perfect for the Cliff CL1384 3.5mm jack sockets used on the prototyping PCBs.
