Is it always expedient to use the gate resistance (RG) value indicated in the data sheet?

The optimum gate resistance value (RG) varies depending on the circuit configuration or operating environment used. The data sheet describes the recommended resistance value to minimize switching loss. Determine an appropriate gate resistance (RG) after considering the relevant switching loss, EMC/EMI, surge voltage, and unexpected characteristics such as vibration, without deviating from the descriptions contained in the data sheet.
