Q&A: Does VIN have to be valid before programming PMIC over i2c?

Q:

Does VIN have to be valid before we can talk to the PMIC over i2c? Can a valid voltage on LICELL and VDDIO work instead?

The PF0100 datasheet says:

----------------------------------------------

To communicate with I2C, VIN must be valid and VDDIO, to which SDA and SCL are pulled up, must be powered by a 1.7 to 3.6V supply. VIN, or the coin cell voltage must be valid to maintain the contents of the registers.

--------------------------------

A:
VIN and VDDIO must be valid for communicating to the I2C block. Having LICELL and VDDIO will not work since a portion of the digital circuitry needed for accessing the registers is powered through VIN.
