2023-12-02 (Sa) EWC_Cyberdeck Screen faceplate drawing

I wanted to start drafting the computer portion of the cyberdeck, but I had yet to decide on a computer monitor. I could have fit a ten-inch unit, but I opted for a seven since they were inexpensive, easy to find, and often had touchscreen capability. I found a USD 40 model with touch, but the deciding factor was that the listing showed dimensions.

I drafted a footprint based on the online measurements. The hole size was not listed, so I guessed 3mm diameter. The picture with the dimensions also showed which side had connectors, so I added a note to include extra space on that side. The image also showed five control buttons, which probably controlled the on-screen menus. I could have left them covered, but I added holes for five 12mm tactile button caps, like the ones I used in the MIDI section. I also added mounting holes, but I must gather measurements on a suitable protoboard before cutting.
