TPS51518: Gate resistor value & linear mode for MOSFET question

Part Number: TPS51518
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CSD87352Q5D

Hello Guys,

Good day.

Our customer have the following inquiries on TPS51518.

"For the TPS51518 design using 12V input  and a 0.8V output at 12A maximum, 350KHz switching operation, is there any risk of the MOSFET pair CSD87352Q5D device getting into linear mode of operation and this MOSFET pair subsequently heating up and potentially failing? I am asking about increasing the series gate resistors from 0 Ohms to 4.7 Ohms and to 2.2 Ohms, in the upper and lower MOSFET gate signals respectively."

Thanks and regards,
