Interview tips for power supply design position (new grad) - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi all,
I have an interview scheduled for next Friday with Artesyn Technologies in MA. More specifically with their power group.
It doesn't have to be specifically for this company but what kind of technical questions should I expect for a new grad for a power supply design position.
Any tips would be appreciated.

Hello crosman,

You should expect to theoretical questions like: Various topologies of SMPS, circuits for each topology, principles of operation.

Could be also questions in control theory, since power supplies involve control loops.

Good luck!!

Best regards,
