Would product life shortens using VGS voltage, 16.5 V: 6 and 0 V: 14 μsec?

Latest Updated:09/02/2013

Question:

The 2SK3481-Z-E1-AZ datasheet states that the absolute maximum rating VGSS is ±20 V. If gate to source voltage were applied under the following conditions, would product life shorten greatly? Usage conditions:
VGS voltage
16.5 V: 6 μsec
0 V: 14 μsec

*50 kHz, 30% duty

Answer:

Since the conditions stated are within the maximum ratings for gate to source voltage, there should be no problem. Please also evaluate area of safe operation and other items before using.
