I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at National Instruments in February 2009.

Interview Details – Interview consists of two main parts. The first part is about past experiences and the second part is technical questions. Past experiences go through situations where you demonstrated the use of a particular skill, like debugging. The technical questions don't go into much detail unless you do very well, but cover a lot of courses.

Interview Question – One of the most difficult questions I got was to draw all the waveforms for a switching mode power supply.   Answer Question

Analog Hardware Engineer Interview

Analog Hardware Engineer
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at National Instruments in April 2011.

Interview Details – Most of the questions were based on solving for the gain of cascaded BJTs. A couple of questions on diodes and opamps. Lot of emphasis on projects and questions based on that. Overall it was not a difficult interview. I screwed up because I was rusty on BJTs ...
There were three rounds of interviews each lasting 1.5 hours. Each with a separate group within NI. Except for the first interviewer, they were friendly and helped me throughout.
