App note: DC-to-DC design guide

DC-DC converter design guide from Vishay. Link here (PDF)

Manufacturers of electronic systems that require power conversion are faced with the need for higher-density dc-to-dc converters that perform more efficiently, within a smaller footprint, and at lower cost despite increasing output loads. To meet these demands, Siliconix has combined advanced TrenchFET and PWM-optimized process technologies, along with innovative new packages, to provide:
– lowest on-resistance for minimum power dissipation
– lowest gate charge for minimum switching losses
– dV/dt shoot-through immunity
– improved thermal management
