This is one of the few short articles to make a proper distinction between inductive and resistive loads when presenting the mosfet switching curves (Figure 1). Great text.

Very good and helpful article. The only way to improve it is to add some references. Especially needed would be the one explaining why "it turns out that with practical, medium speed turn-on transition a good approximation of turn-on losses is just to make them equal to the reverse recovery losses! (explanation of this is beyond the scope of this article)"
