    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Power Integrations in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    2-level interview: one with manager (less technical), one with colleagues with in-depth discussion about power supply topologies and design. Good engineers will find it relatively easy. When the questions became more challenging, it's important to get back to basics. In case you claim you've done something in the past, be prepared to provide evidence

    Product Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Power Integrations in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial recruiter interview was ignored, but when I called back, I got an interview immediately. I had a phone screen with the recruiter, then in-person interviews with the whole team - other marketing managers and engineers, HR. I believe I talked to 5 people total for 45 minutes each.

    The people definitely looked busy and overworked. It had a small-office feel. Work culture is common for the semi-conductor industry - get in at 8, leave at 6.

    Typical questions include common industry problems, such as how to beat low-cost competitors out in Asia.
    Other questions include RC circuits, LC circuits.
    Another question was based on taking an AC input and converting it to a stable DC voltage. (Flyback)

    Interview Questions
    • Take an AC input of 120V; draw a circuit that converts it to 20V output.   View Answer
    • Draw an RC circuit. How much time does it take to charge to 90% of the input voltage when Vin is applied?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiations were cordial. Just remember - paid education is a myth, no matter what the HR person tells you.
