            Test Sections
              Interview Experience
              Test was subjective and questions were asked from basic analog, digital design, VHDL and VLSI circuits.
              Round 2

              Technical Interview

              Interview Questions
                Interview Experience
                Had 3 technical interviews each around 25 minutes. They asked me about my summer internship and
                questions from microcontroller architecture and its interfacing. Then they asked me the questions
                from those problems which I didn't attempt in the written test.
                Interview Tips
                For electrical students, it might be a bit challenging. I took an elective on Microcontroller in 7th sem which
                helped me a lot during the interview. You might want to brush up your concepts of 8085, digital, OPAMPs
                and analog

                  My family background and my future goals were asked. They asked me about
                  my internship project and wanted to know what I learnt during the internship. Then I asked a few questions
                  from them about the company work culture and growth opportunities

                    Interview Experience
                    Copied the format from a senior. Got it proofread from friends. It is always better to attend these talks. Sometimes, some interviwers ask questions based on ppt. Also company expects that those interested in the profile of the company will attend its ppt.
