Clock Divider is a simple module I designed based on the Fonitronik OnBeat Divider ( It’s the first time I designed a hybrid smd & through hole pcb where all the smd parts are factory placed and soldered while all the through hole parts are manually soldered. 

For the front panel I designed a pcb with matte black solder mask. The exposed copper is coated using the ENIG-RoHS (Nickel and Gold) finish for extra durability and nice golden color. 

I also used a technique Make Noise uses on their modules. By removing the Copper Layer and Solder Mask above the pcb LEDs, you get this illuminated panel which looks cool and also diffuses the LED lights nicely.
