I haven't done a PCB design yet, I'm still working out the exact components that I plan on using. I found out that the datasheet for the 3.3V linear regulator that I have on hand (ua78m33c) specifies a minimum voltage input slightly greater than 5V. I've had no issues myself with feeding 5V into it, but would prefer to not use a component outside of its recommended specs in the finished product.
