What is Gate Bounce?

 Inherent stray capacitances within MOSFET structures can cause gate bounce, leading to momentary turn-on when the MOSFET is driven off. This occurs due to the capacitive potential divider formed by CGD and CGS. When voltage appears across drain and source, dv/dt couples back to the gate through CGD, potentially causing cross conduction in half-bridge configurations.
