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 versatile 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.
5V setup: Same as previous, but on a bare PCB. Headers are optional.

Version 1.1 has two switch terminations to control main power and backlight power. 

High current charging possible thanks to voltage divider on D+/D-. Older revision shown, this feature is present in current version.
