Round 1

Test

Duration
60 Minutes
No. of Questions
35 questions
Test Sections
    Interview Experience
    CGPS Criteria for cypress was 8.0 , and only MTech and dual degree students of electronics and electrical departments were eligible.
    In the written test there were Analog,Digital,Microprocessor and C section. 10 objective questions in analog digial and micprocessor section and 5 questions in C section, analog and digital questions were basic gate level questions , there were some questions related to instructions and dsp questions in microprocessor sections, questions of output or error were asked in C section.
    Interview Tips
    Practice some previous gate questions that will be sufficient for analog and digital , and revise basic instruction sets for micro section, in C section there were only 5 questions so prepare for other sections prior to C,Basic C will be sufficient.
    Round 2

                  Interview Experience
                  I was primarily interested in Analog design and told them upfront that I want to be interviewed in Analog profile. They asked me to draw an amplifier and explain that circuit, starting from biasing to small signal gain and small signal models, frequency response and voltage swings. Once done, they asked me about my EE610 course project and the challenges faced by me and how did I overcome them, time taken to make the layout of the circuit and effect of parasitic in the design.
