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 1

        technical interview

        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.
        Round 2

        TECHNICAL INTERVIEW

        Interview Experience
        They asked me about differential amplifiers, about the various advantages and disadvantages of CS, CD and CG amplifier stages.

          Round 1

          Technical Interview

          Interview Experience
          First round of the interview was based on basic of VLSI as that of Intel but additional questions based on programming and algorithm (because cypress was offering two profile software and core hardware).
          Round 2

          Technical Interview

          Interview Experience
          The Second round was little bit harder than first one. Questions were based on the practical (Lab) problems. Overall he just wants to check the thinking level towards problems.
