LTM8051 Bias

Category: Datasheet/Specs
Product Number: LTM8051


I would like to use the LTM8051 to output voltages below 2V all from an input of 12V. How should I connect to the BIASn pins?

BIASn has an absolute maximum of 10V so I cannot connect it to Vin, and my output are below 3.2V which is the minimum it requires.

The datasheet states:
"The BIASn pin may also be tied to GND at the cost of a small degradation in efficiency."
I'm happy to take a small degradation in efficiency over using an external supply for BIASn, but will this internally connect it to Vin and raise its voltage above the 10V max?

Thank you
