This PCB simplifies the task of distributing power to a mini-arcade built with a Raspberry Pi or other OEM electronic parts. The Power Block Arcade distributes input power to screw terminal pairs. The goal is to simplify wiring to an arcade's main components: LCD, amplifier, marquee back-light, and Raspberry Pi (or other single board computer). This PCB is just a glorified hub with easy terminations for wire pairs or dc pigtails to make the wiring task easier. This PCB can accept a common adjustable DC buck (step-down) converter module (found on discount electronic distributors) for those who want to use a 12V DC input on their arcade. Switch jumpers are brought out to screw terminals to incorporate on/off switches into their arcade or project design.
Having built a few hundred mini arcades, the task of wiring OEM electronic parts was cumbersome inside a small space. This PCB simplifies the task and cleans up the wiring job inside my mini arcades.
This PCB can accept the common adjustable LM2596 DC buck (step-down) converter (found on discount electronic distributors) for those who want to use a 12V DC input for their arcade. With the adjustable module this PCB becomes a universal PSU hub for many hobby projects that need power. This PCB is stack-able to construct a multi-voltage power supply. If you solder the appropriate resistors this PCB also functions as a high-current USB charger. Resistors are not included.
