Better Wiring with the Power Block

I've built enough arcades to know wiring them can be combersome. For those new to electronics it can be a daunting task. I made this this PCB to simplify getting power to the various electronic components (LCD, amplifier, backlight) while being verstale enough to be used in any small arcade build.

12V input with a step-down converter for 5V
5V setup: be sure to connect jumper in-place of step-down converter.

Very happy with this PCB. Will be revising it slightly later on to add one more switch to control the LED backlight's power connection.

High current charging possible thanks to voltage divider on D+/D-
