Round 1

screening test

Interview Experience
ARM conducts a fairly simple test for screening, based on basic analog and digital electronics. Paper also contains a few tough aptitude questions. This is followed by a technical and a HR interview.
Interview Tips
I did brush up my basics which came in very handy. Probably your class notes are enough to remind you of the basics. I did not prepare well for aptitude, which I suggest you as a must do. I spent most time preparing for interview - ARM processor architecture( Hennessey Patterson, 4th ARM edition- highly recommended), digital design and embedded systems. Some more preparation regarding common questions asked in interviews can come in handy.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
My interview ended up to be a discussion about my area of interest. We talked about GPUs and their suitability in mobile market where I got to talk about what I like and know of. I just have one suggestion, make sure the interviewer does not go out of your area of interest and comfort zone! Also, prepare a few really good answerable questions in the field for interviewer which are really important to get a good last impression.

Skill Tips
I received a PPO from ARM after my internship. Based on your manager's opinion, you will be invited for an interview for PPO during the last week of your internship. My interview was with two senior managers from Architecture and Technology team. Interview difficulty level was very high, as they exhaustively asked on various aspects of modern computer architecture and design. The work done was critically reviewed and several questions about the work methodology were asked. I think the most helpful part was, I made sure I understood the key ideas behind the work I was assigned and explored more about them in free time.<br />
General Tips
If you really like computer architecture, CPU/GPU or other processing system designs then you would like this company. Make sure you are up-to date with current trends in the industry, new processor releases etc which can showcase your interest during the interview.

Prepare on what to speak when you are asked "What do you like and Why?", as a confident answer to this question can leave the interviewer impressed.

Questions must not be like- what will be my pay or will you offer to-fro airfare etc! Questions such as what will I get to work on or about promotion policy of the company will make them think you are really interested and you are there for work.
