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)"

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
