3.5v regulator

Use a step down regulator with adjustable output. You can get these regulators from National Semiconductor, Texas Instruments, Linear Technology, etc.

lm3985

id like to be on the safe side, and 500mA is the maximum it'll have to take

EDIT: and it should be able to take from 4.40V to 5.25V and give 3.00V to 3.60V, with a maximum I of 500mA

5v a 3.5v

Hi.
Cannot understand the habit of doing things the hard way.

Just connect two 1N4001 silicon diodes in series to your 5V source and you will get 3.5V
