What people use these days to prepare for Hardware Engineer interview? I mean compare to like leetcode for sw, is there something similar available for hw? Targeting for companies like MS, Amazon, Apple, Google, Nvidia is even better when you answer your thought.

    My interview at google for HW was only based on HW and no coding question.

    Because that's Google. I wouldn't be surprised if they even ask that for janitor position.

    Initial phone screen with Amazon for Senior RF HW Position:
    I had to solve a signal integrity issue on a clock signal, explain how to design a low profile switching power supply, and how to do impedance matching during layout for 2.4GHz BLE.
    Then they asked their Leadership Questions.

    I've been asked a lot about safety. Make sure you mention watchdogs if safety comes up.

    well, all modern hardware is using code. unless you interview at linear technology or Maxim or Texas instruments where it's pure analog. then it's purely circuit based questions
