LT8620MPMSE#PBF - Power dissipation calculations

Hi All,

We are planning to use LT8620 in one our application. We want to understand the power dissipation inside the IC. Datasheet provides Rds(on) for high side and low side internal FETs, however it does not provide parameters to evaluate switching losses. In our application, since our full load current is ~1.5A, we will be in Continuous conduction mode.

Please provide the necessary parameters to calculate switching losses of internal FETs and to calculate gate drive losses so that we can evaluate how much heat sinking can be provided to this IC.
