Hi all,

    I have designed MC13213 board which has to operate with rechargeable Li-ion battery(3.7V), it also includes charge management (controller) IC. But as per the datasheet of mc1321x the operating voltage is 3.0V(max 3.4V). What kind of circuit should be used to get 3.0V from Li-ion battery(3.7V). Can I give 3.7V to MC1321x through a diode? Thanks in advance.
