Shoot-through occurs when both the upper and lower MOSFETs are on-times overlap, even for a very brief period with the result of a short from power to ground as well as possible power-device damage; device turn-on/off timing must allow for a brief 'dead time' when neither device is on, in order to avoid the possibility of this happening.
