2023-12-31 (Su) EWC_Cyberdeck COMPLETED

After I tore out the old voltage regulator, I subbed in a more powerful LM2596 unit, which was also rated for 3A, but I have had reliable performance in the past. I adjusted it to 12V and secured it inside the enclosure. The computer powered on, as before, and I left it to run for a few minutes without an issue.

The EWC_Cyberdeck is complete, but there are remaining tasks. I will attend them later when I have the bandwidth for this project, but now I need space. Most notably, I need to wipe the micro PC, install a fresh copy of Windows, and connect the MIDI section to the PC. I want to make a Bluetooth bridge that converts the keyboard's UART communication to a wireless keyboard.
