TPS62290 feedback divider R1 and R2

Q: TPS62290 feedback divider R1 and R2 by 687520


In order to set Vout = 1.5V the datasheet recommends to use R2=180k and R1=270k.
Is it possible to use R2=120k and R1=180k?

Are there any disadvantages, except higher current thru the divider, to expect?

This is ok but will give slightly lower efficiency at very very light loads where the divider current becomes a significant portion of the load current.  I would recommend optimizing the Cff per this app note: http://www.ti.com/lit/an/slva289/slva289.pdf  You can start with a 33 or 47 pF.

There is also the newer TPS62060 which might give a smaller solution size and better high load efficiency.
