2023-12-28 (Th) EWC_Cyberdeck PC regulator testing

The screen had to come out of its faceplate, which had to come off the enclosure. The faceplate partially covered the ears on the screen's PCB, and I had to widen the cutout with a razor knife to give enough clearance to add some spare nuts to act as standoffs. The micro USB cables fit easily, but the HDMI cable was too bulky. I ordered a new one with a 90° bend.

The 12V power supply that came with the computer plugs into the wall, and my battery nominally outputs 14.8V, which could be too much for the onboard regulator if one exists. I pulled a 3A regulator module (MP1584EN) from my stock, connected it to the battery with micro hook connectors, and held my test leads to the output. I adjusted it to get a steady and precise 12V.
