Microcontroller driven boost converter.

LED driver ICs are not terribly expensive but this a very simple way to implement voltage boost from a 1S li-ion cell.
Any inductor can be used, but frequency should be optimized for that specific inductor.
ADC will monitor the LED voltage in case of LED failure or disconnection.

Rev1: working.
Rev2: minor tweaks, add battery voltage sensing.
