    How to power Pioneer board using 3.6V?

    steve.muller

      Is there a straight-forward way to power the Pioneer from a 3.6V power supply?  I have tried multiple methods of doing so without much success... Applying 3.6V to Vin seems to do nothing.  Applying it through the USB port does not provide enough power and so one of the lights dimly lights up, but doesn't do much else.  It seems applying 3.3V-3.4V through the 3.3V EXT works, but the onboard protection circuitry shuts off the board when I get to about 3.47V (tested using a bench power supply).

         

      Is there a straight-forward method of powering this board with 3.6V without needing to result to external regulation circuitry?
