How should the gate resistance (RG) be determined?

The gate resistance value (RG) greatly impacts dv/dt, radiation noise, voltage/current surge, and switching loss. Please comprehensively determine an appropriate value that corresponds to the target figure of your actual design. As for reference, a recommended turn-on resistance value (RG(on)) is twice or higher than that of the standard value from datasheet, and a recommended turn-off resistance value (RG(off)) is one to two times that of the standard value.
