Power regulated at all?

I'm relatively new to electronics, so bear with me here! If I use a 3.7 volt battery to power the tiny-lily and then hook up a sensor that can take a maximum 3.6v, does the lily produce a clean 3.3v output or am I unregulated and going to blow the sensor?

http://tiny-circuits.com/shop/6458/  Check out the pink section near the bottom of the page.  Unfortunatly, this board does not include a voltage regulator.  There are many inexpensive voltage regulator IC's available though for your project.  You may want to look at the LM317.  If size is a concern look at it in SMD format.  They're like 50 cents.

So, I have a project where I would like to have 5V out to a sensor.

If I use a 3.7 Lipo battery connected to a Voltage stepper up to 5V, the tiny lilly can still handle it?  I will see ~5V at the pin if I send full 255 or 1023 increments to the pin?

Thanks,
Matt
