    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. Since i had an experience from Qualcomm, the questions were oriented towards that. Pretty easy to crack with right preparation and confidence. Glassdoor was really helpful in my preparation and It made me feel prepared during my interview. According to me, Nvidia focuses on logical concepts rather than theory that we study. Make sure you know the basisc well and observe every word the interviewer talks to you.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Austin, TX) in July 2013

    Interview
    I was contacted by the HR department of Silicon Labs to see if I was interested in a couple of positions they were hiring for. They were particularly interested in my qualifications from my previous jobs. I was then contacted by the hiring manager, who setup a phone interview with one of his team-members. I was then flown in to Austin for a day-long interview. There were a total of 7 interviews back to back until about 4 pm. They were all technical in nature - they tested my design knowledge, my scripting and programming capabilities and my familiarity with CAD tools.
