I want to replace the onboard AMS1117-5.0 (broken) with a LM7805. However, the pinout is different between the two voltage regulators; AMS1117: Gnd, Vout, Vin vs LM7805: Vin, Gnd, Vout.
I would like to know what is the best practice of how to approach this? Line-up the Vin and cross the Vout and Ground pins and add some insulation so they dont make contact. How do the experts at EESX do this?
Follow-up: adding the lm7805 using jumper wires works fine with the 12v DC input i have. It is a temporary fix until replacement ams1117 arrive.
