Design Engineer Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in May 2014.
Several phone calls including technical and non-technical interviews. Need to solve some paper-based questions. No HR interview. The last one is on-site full-day technical interview. The offer was given on the same day of the on-site interview,
- All kinds of questions related to transistor level, system level, device physics, and lab tool usage. Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in March 2012.
If you want to be a design engineer at Linear, besides knowing circuit fundamentals (R's, C's, L's) you really have to know your transistors. Current mirrors, current sources, diff pairs, cascoding, matching, op-amps, etc. You should also know control systems, noise gain, miller effect, etc. Last but not least, a knowledge of device structure, physics, and non-idealities is necessary. Some companies pride themselves in being able to train monkeys to be design engineers, but Linear only accepts the very best.
- For an op-amp with 1kOhm output impedance and 1MHz GBP (1st order gain rolloff), operated as a follower and driving a capacitive load, what value of capacitance will bring the phase margin to 45 degrees? 1 Answer

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Boston, MA) in February 2011.
He asked basic questions, one current mirror matching problem, one circuit transfer function, one noise related quesiton

The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) in March 2009.
Coordination of the interview was professional. Interview consisted of 7-8 1-on-1 interviews at remote site and 7-8 1-on-1 interviews at HQ. Interviewers were very thorough: one of them had 3-4 pages of printed questions for me to go through with little help. If you know your fundamentals, you'll do well.
- Discuss the benefits cascode devices have on PSRR performance. 2 Answers
Reasons for Declining
Wasn't excited about remote location.
