I Applied for job through Referral for Physical design engineer role at Intel
Interview Process
Technical Interview Technical Interview Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me something about yourself.
  • Question 2: Can you explain more about your project, What was your role in it ?
  • Question 3: Which is the subject you like the most?
  • Question 4: Can you draw a CMOS inverter and explain
  • Question 5: Can you explain 5 level of working of an Inverter
  • Question 6: What is strong 1 and strong 0 concepts in an inverter
  • Question 7: What you know about layout designing, which tool you have worked with
Interview Experience
Basically they try know your technical knowledge through first, In fact this round is the more or less like an Elimination round where in you have to reply with little more explanation or until he moves to next question which mostly will be related to your answer. So jump into trouble by trying to make your own answer rather try to switch on to a topic that you well
Interview Tips
A good grasp of Basic electronics and VLSI questions will help a lot in this round. Never go for an interview without brushing up your knowledge. Be prepared with self intro for atleast 2/3min such a way that any question from it can be answered with immense confidence level.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Can you introduce yourself
  • Question 2: which is your favorite subject throughout your course of study
  • Question 3: What is virtual ground concept in an op-amp
  • Question 4: Can a draw a basic transistor amplifier and explain
  • Question 5: Why we prefer voltage divider bias circuit over others.
  • Question 6: What is load line, What is difference between dc load line to that of ac load line
  • Question 7: What is Q point, how does voltage divider bias fix Q point.
  • Question 8: What you know about stabilization concept in an amplifier
  • Question 9: Can draw n basic RC circuit for low pass filter and explain
  • Question 10: How will be the charging and discharging of Capacitor in this circuit.
  • Question 11: Can you draw the waveform for charging and discharging current.
  • Question 12: What are the conditions for an RC circuit to work as an integrator/differentiator Can you derive it with this circuit
  • Question 13: What is the difference between small signal analysis to that for large signal anaysis
Interview Experience
This was the round which I was able to perform well. I feel that the interviewer wanted to know more about my technical skills and hence more questions. A good preparation was required to tackle this round, and in fact I did. The interviewer was quite happy when I was able to give answer more than expected. NPTEL videos helped me a lot to face this round.
Interview Tips
Be thorough with RC, RLC, circuit, its charging/discharging. Concept in transistor biasing, its fixing and stabilization have to known. Be ready with your subject of interest, and should be able to answer if asked from any corner of it.
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: How good are in programming. Rate out of 10
  • Question 2: What are second order effects in CMOS. Can you explain each one?
  • Question 3: How does the current equation changes when second order effects taken in account
  • Question 4: What you know about CMOS latch-up. Explain with help of circuitry.
  • Question 5: How can we avoid latch up in a CMOS circuit.
  • Question 6: Why CMOS is preferred over NMOS and PMOS.
  • Question 7: Draw cross sectional view an NMOS and explain its electrons flow level working.
  • Question 8: Characteristics curve for NMOS, PMOS and CMOS
Interview Experience
As you can see, this round was more in VLSI stuffs. Since I said that I am not interested in programming, he changed the discussion into relevant domain. This round was more or less to check I fit into other positions also like Design Automation/Verification etc
Interview Tips
Dont give an answer 'yes' for an area you dont know or rather you are not interested into
-> Take your own time to answer the question. Interviewer not more concerned about how fast you can answer.
-> I would suggestion you to watch this NPTEL video to learn about CMOS latch up. It helped me:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlwcPjHpnH0

  • Question 5: One question to check how I Manage an Event Inside Intel
  • Question 6: What is your salary expectation?
  • Question 7: Any questions that you have to ask us?
Interview Experience
More than a HR interview, it was more like an Behavioral round. The interview was taken by Skip level Manager. For last question, I asked 'what will be my actual work here and where can I find myself 2/3 years down the line?.
All the interviews where 1:1.
Interview Tips
->Never give answer 'no' for the last question I mentioned here
-> All the answers in this should be abide by ethics and values.
