    Interview

    First I interviewed with a TI recruiter on my college campus. Then after that had a phone interview where I had to give a technical presentation and answer a basic opamp question. Finally, I was flown down to Dallas for an on-site interview. The interview process was fairly smooth and the recruiter was very nice; she coordinated everything well. On-site I was asked behavioral questions (Why do you want to be a design engineer? What skills do you have? etc) as well as technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Draw the cross-section of a MOSFET, the I-V characteristics and describe nonidealities 2) Voltage waveform of an RC circuit across the resistor and capacitor 3) D flip flop configuration 4) Some tricky circuit analysis questions 5) Design a comparator at the transistor level   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I met with the people from TI at an University Career Fair in September. I explained my background and my interests. I got back from them in October, asking me to take an On-campus interview with them. It was an HR- interview. Lots of behavioral questions. Lasted 30 mins. Heard back from them after about 2 weeks, asking for availability for an webex/telephone interview. I was asked to give a 10 min presentation on anything. I presented my Digital Design project. Was followed by 50 mins of technical questions. Very basic questions, concerning my project. I've cleared my second round and waiting on the third and final round.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic question in Digital Design. Some question in Analog IC were asked but i was more of a Digital Design person   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Sept 2013, Initially I had an on campus interview in a career fair. they asked me 2-3 simple and then hard questions and I answered well, then they scheduled an on campus interview. Initially they asked the difference between MOS and BJT. I said current noise and so on. Also a few questions on PLL. In the on campus interview they asked about a source follower. Then I had to do a presentation of a design that I had done through skype interview. They asked a few questions not so hard regarding that design. On the on site interview there were 2 groups. Th first was tough. They asked many many questions on PLL I answered most of it but had not review it so did not answer all the questions. The second group was good only a question on phase margin, stability, simple OTA and also many questions on first order RC circuits. like the step response and so on. I though I did very well but apparently was not enough!
