DRV8702-Q1: VREF pin voltage limit

Part Number: DRV8702-Q1


I'm using the DRV8702-Q1 for independent PWM driving. In such conditions I don't need current regulation, so the datasheet suggest connecting VREF directly to AVDD.

My doubt is that AVDD=5V and the recommended operating condition of VREF goes up to 3.6 V. Therefore, should I use a resistor divider to obtain 3.6 V, or do as stated and connect to AVDD? If it is the latter, would the performance/reliability of the part be compromised?
