Another application note from Silicon Labs on determining the proper FET used on their Si875x driver based on its application. Link here (PDF)

The Si875x enables creating custom solid state relay (SSR) configurations. Supporting customer-selected external FETs, the Si875x combines robust isolation technology with a FET driver to form a complete, isolated, switch. Versatile inputs provide digital CMOS pin control (Si8751) or diode emulation (Si8752) to best suit the application, plus flexible outputs to support driving ac or dc load configurations. A floating secondary side dc voltage source is unnecessary as the product generates its own self contained gate drive output voltage, reducing cost, size, and complexity.
