Interview Process
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
60 Minutes
No. of Questions
50 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Quantitative Ability (20)
  • Section 2: Quantitative Ability (20)
  • Section 3: Programming Skills (10)
Interview Experience
The Quant and Programming sections were long but fairly easy; I pretty much sailed through them. However, the core EC section was really lengthy and not so easy, and also had negative marking. I was able to complete the first 2 sections completely, and around 11/20 questions in the core section.
The Quant section touched basic topics like probability, algebra and simple geometry. Programming questions were quite syntax-based, rather than algorithm-based. In the core section, the focus was on device physics and digital electronics, including combinational/sequential circuits and microprocessors.
Interview Tips
1. Practice Quantitative sections. A LOT. Speed is of the essence in these sections, because almost everyone is on the same level as you are where mathematics is concerned.
2. Know the basic syntax of C++, that is the most common language you're tested on in the Programming section. Also know simple data structures and complexity calculations.
3. The core section is the most important one, so make sure your knowledge is sound and practice solving digital circuits as fast as you can.
4. The EC section is generally quite lengthy, so quickly flip through the questions once and then figure out what questions you can do for sure, finish those and then start on the remaining ones. DO NOT STAY ON ONE QUESTION FOR TOO LONG, because you won't even be able to haphazardly guess on the other questions because of the negative marking.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Explain the difference between Moore and Mealy state models.
  • Question 2: Explain the difference between Moore and Mealy state models.
  • Question 3: Draw the state diagram and the clocked D-flipflop circuit for a 0110 sequence detector.
  • Question 4: What is parity and how is it used? Draw the circuit diagram for a parity checker.
  • Question 5: Design a memory organization given the size and block units.
  • Question 6: Draw the circuit diagram for a random number generator.
  • Question 7: What is a Schmitt trigger/inverter?
  • Question 8: Arrange the inputs to AND gates so that power usage is optimized/delay is optimized.
  • Question 9: Draw the CMOS circuit for a given logic equation and do the corresponding W/L sizing.
  • Question 10: Draw a circuit for a set of logic equations using PLA.
  • Question 11: Draw and talk about a basic SRAM cell.
  • Question 12: Given the delays for gates and wires, draw output waveforms for the given logic circuit.
  • Question 13: What is Min-Cut placement algorithm? Given some block sizes, use the algorithm to place them on a given chip area.
  • Question 14: Given a clock waveform of frequency f, design a circuit to get an output of frequency f/3.
Interview Experience
I had only one round of technical interview. The interviewer was a person who'd worked at Qualcomm for around 5 years, as a Senior Engineer. The questions were not too tough, but challenging enough that you had to be quick at circuit evaluations. I wasn't able to solve all the questions completely, but talking aloud really helped, the interviewer himself would pass on hints or correct me sometimes if I went too far off on a tangent.
All in all, the interview lasted for about 45 minutes and was tiring but really fun if you like EC. For the first time, I realized that I actually knew electronics after studying it for 4 years! ;)
Interview Tips
1. Many people must have said this to you, but I'll say it again: Don't be too nervous. The questions are asked in such a way that you will definitely not be able to do all of them, so don't freak if you miss something here and there, they know it too!
2. Make sure you have the basics of logic gates, sequential design and digital VLSI circuits down pat when you're preparing for the interview. These are the main areas they are looking for in the VLSI Electronics interviews. Apart from these, a knowledge of Computer Architecture and basic VLSI CAD wouldnn't hurt!
3. I can't emphasize this enough: Talk out when thinking. It is very important for the interviewers to know what kind of technical logic you use when working out problems, and most often they start talking with you, which leads to an insightful discussion rather than a Q&A session.
4. Make sure your interest in the field also comes across; as far as I saw, they're looking for people who actually like EC and will be able to work hours together without getting bored of it (Well, not too much :P)
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Explain a little about your M.Tech. project.
  • Question 2: What do you know about Qualcomm?
  • Question 3: Have you ever worked in groups? What kind of work was it?
Interview Experience
The HR interview wasn't really an interview; it was more of a 15-minute discussion with an HR person. He was basically looking to see whather I would be able to fit into a team-oriented work environment and add something to it, that's all. Apart from that, there was mostly a discussion on the package breakdown, and the kind of work and teams we could be involved with in Qualcomm.
Interview Tips
1. Know something about Qualcomm, so that you're able to answer the first question they'll mostly ask.
2. This round is set to get to know you, so clear all your doubts and ask as many questions as you want.
3. Once again, try to express your interest in working in the field of electronics; if your passion shows, this round is pretty much cleared!

Motivation for applying
I've always been interested in Electronics, ever since I studied the 8085 Microprocessor in the 12th Grade. Even when I joined IITKGP, I changed my Department to Electronics after my first year, because that's what I wanted to study!

Circuit design is one of the most interesting and challenging fields in today's electronics field, and I would love to see what happens, and be a part of it. Especially since right now we're on the verge of a big change - we're close to moving away from silicon-based designs; what happens next?

Application
I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Surat for ENGINEER role at Mahindra Comviva
Interview Process
Test Technical Interview Technical Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Test

Test Sections
  • Section 1: WRITTEN TEST
Interview Experience
My written test went great , there were aptitude as well as technical questions, and as I was solving both of them on a daily basis, clearing written was a cakewalk for me. But as other students were also preparing for the same, so I was not sure whether I will be selected or not. Because Mahindra Comviva came in the second month of recruitment process, there was a nice competition for the written test as well.
Interview Tips
Be prepared for the technical. You may think that you will be to answer that easily because you are in final year of your college but you might need to brush up everything you have learnt in those three years specially Database Management System. So brush up your technical skills and practice questions from quantitative aptitude like questions based on speed, time and distance, probability, ratios and algebra.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me something about you
  • Question 2: What is inheritance? Show me by a code that shouldn't be a pseudo code but can be in any language
  • Question 3: What is normalization? What do you mean by 1NF, 2NF, 3NF, 4NF?
  • Question 4: He asked me to run a SQL query which i don't remember but it was base on joins. Then he made two relations and asked me about all the aggregate functions that can be applied on those relations and their result.
  • Question 5: He asked me about OOPs concepts and told me to describe every concept with the help of a code.
  • Question 6: He asked me about the project which I mentioned in my resume and which was a mini project in DBMS.
  • Question 7: He asked me to ask some doubts if I had any
Interview Experience
I had a great time with the interviewer. My interview lasted for about 50-55 minutes and in that time, he pretty much completed all the subjects that I have learnt in previous two years. So it was kind of a brainstorming session for me, remembering everything which I have already done.
Interview Tips
Be thorough with you projects whatever you have mentioned in your resume. Any project might interest them and your whole interview can revolve around one. Also as I said, brush up your technical knowledge before going for the interview and if they ask "tell me about yourself", you should be pretty confident with whatever you say and that should be precise but you should cover all the details of your personality that would be enough for him to make a judgement of how good an employee can you be, so don't take breaks while telling him about yourself, that should be in a flow
Round 3

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself
  • Question 2: He asked me a puzzle. He drew a trapezium on a paper. In that trapezium, on of the non parallel side was perpendicular to the parallel sides and other was and then he told me to divide that trapezium in 4 equal parts of the same shape which can be any shape.
  • Question 3: He stated two problem statements which were also kind of a puzzle which I don't remember clearly
  • Question 4: He drew two relations and asked me to write some SQL queries.
  • Question 5: He asked me about my summer internship project
  • Question 6: He asked me to ask some doubts if I had any
Interview Experience
This interview lasted for about 40 minutes. Out of those 40 minutes, I took about 10 minutes for solving that puzzle but in the end I solved that puzzle. Problem statements were quite easy. And I am good with SQL, so I had no issues over there. This was more smartness plus technical oriented interview.
Interview Tips
Again, be thorough with all your projects. Be smart enough to solve puzzles in time.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself
  • Question 2: Think about any topic which might interest you, think for the points you want to mention and say something on that topic for about two minutes by the clock. He told me that he is leaving the room and as soon as he enters the room, I should start speaking and speak for two minutes, I have to make sure that he becomes interested in the topic and after finishing speaking on that topic, I should ask him questions.
  • Question 3: Why do you think you are meticulous. Tell me five things that are wrong with this room.
  • Question 4: Asked me questions from that topic.
  • Question 5: He gave me situation in which there was an isolated road and I was going on that road for some very important work. I see a person hit by a vehicle, then what will I do. Keep on walking as I was going for something very important or help that person. Then he asked me more questions by twisting the situation.
  • Question 6: Why do you want to join our company?
  • Question 7: Why should we select you?
  • Question 8: Where do you see yourself after 5 or 10 years down the line?
  • Question 9: He asked me to ask some doubts if I had any
Interview Experience
This was the best interview out of three. First of all, I was told to speak on a topic of my interest where I chose F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I love that show and I can talk for about hours on that show. So I became very casual while speaking on that topic. And fortunately, it was his favorite show too, so we talked about that show for a while. Then he gave me such tasks where I actually proved whatever I was saying so it was a nice, great experience.
Interview Tips
Be thorough with "tell me about yourself", because your whole interview will be according to whatever you say. He will give you situations to actually test whether whatever you are saying is right or not and he will judge you then and there. So don't fake your personality and make sure you have done a full research on the company and the profile which will actually help you in answering most of the questions like "why should we select you" and all. In the end, don't forget to ask EVERY interviewer a question. It gives them an impression that you are actually interested in their company.

      Interview Experience
      My first question was directly on my Project that i have done previously on Embedded Systems. I first gave the interviewer a brief description about what my project is, how it has been implemented, components used in the project and main real time application of the project.
      ->He asked me several questions on my project from HIGH-LEVEL diagram to register,bit level, like what protocols have been used, detailed description of each component used and how it works.So prepare your project well so that if any question asked on it you can answer it.
      ->Then he asked me questions on C/C++. Well being an Electronics engineer one should know basics of C at least and the syntax and definition of basic things. I told him that I am clear with the basics of it. He asked me.... What are POINTERS and whats its syntax, Structure and its syntax, Macros, and how they are used in a program.Well i told him all of it with syntax but when it came to tell him that where i have used it ..... i said SIR i haven't used them all but i know how to Implement them and use them in a program with small examples.
      ->He asked me questions on Basic Electrical Engineering like what are transformers with diagram, how it is used to convert from AC.Supply to D.C. supply with diagram.
      -> Questions from Devices and Circuits.... What is a common collector transistor with diagram, Full wave rectifier with diagram and explanation.
      Then he asked me "Whether any Questions from your side to me ?? ".... I asked him that "This is my first ever personal interview so how it went".He said that "he was very much satisfied with my answers and explanations and your interview went well". This whole interview took approximately 30-40 minutes
      Round 3

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      Well my HR interview were taken by two persons one by one.
      Questions Asked-
      -> Introduce yourself. I told him my name, from where i belong, My School name and my current CPI.
      -> Projects done and and project on which currently working. I told him the brief only about both the projects no detailed explanations about it.
      -> The interviewer asked me about my family background.
      -> Then she asked me "Why do you want to join this company". I answered that "Mam I am particularly interested in this domain of work, as you can see that i have done various project on Embedded systems i would like to continue in the same field.
      -> "Why you are not going for higher studies?". I said that Mam In the past 3 years I am giving time to both the Studies and Projects, i came to know about myself i am able to explore more in the Practical field as compared to the Theoretical knowledge and if I got selected for this job i think it will give me more experience, more knowledge in practical world as compared to go for 2 years of Higher Studies.(if you want this job don't say in favor of higher studies.)

        Parameters for shortlisting (at each stage of process):Varied ResumeAny work done in FGPACG - I had CGPA of 8.66Internship - Was an Intern at QualcommProjects - Digital IC Design-used Standard Cell Design,Wireless-OFDMsynchronization and channel estimation,Automatic speech recognition)
        Round 2

        Technical Interview

        Interview Experience
        Only 1 round of interview was taken.No HR round and only Technical Questions were asked.

        Basics in our courses(state diagrams etc.) were tested.Concepts were explained and was asked questions. So, skill ofgrasping and applying were also testedSpeed didn’t matter. How aproblem was approached,thought were testedNo knowledge regarding minors/electives tested.

        For Core:No courses/electives looked at(as nothing related to FPGA is taught)Nothing related to BTP/DDP
        Interview Tips
        Good skills of maths might help.

        In the interview, in 2nd question which was mentioned, whether repetition isallowed or not was asked by the candidate.This really mattered as that was theonly thing different he has done from the person who did an intern in FPGA andit might helped in getting selected finally :)
        Round 3

        Case Study Interview

        Interview Questions
        • Question 1: Implement the following code using gates(MUX and multiplier) If(A): F = D*E Else: F = G*H
        • Question 2: Draw State diagram to find a pattern 1011.Important to ask: If overlap is allowed.If there are 1000 states, we represent using 10 bits. If ‘P’ power is consumed when the system moves from State 0 to State 1 (only 1 bit is flipped), argue that power consumed when system moves from State 1024 to State 0 (10 bits get flipped) is more than 10P and where is the extra power getting dissipated.
        • Question 3: Timing analysis of Sequential and combinational logic: Definition of Setup time. How does it affect the system. Find the minimum clock frequency given Tcq, delay of all the gates, Tsu, Thold.
        • Question 4: Due to some other type of fabrication, if clock frequency happened to be more than whatit is supposed to be(the one calculated above), how do you handle that situation?

        Interview Experience
        Quite a grilling experience. The concepts and the subject knowledge is tested through and through. Various questions from the core subjects. The questions seemed to be sprouting one after the other. Quick thinking was required. The interview went on for around 40-45 minutes.
        Interview Tips
        Keep calm and answer what you know. Don't try to beat around the bush. If you don't know, just tell that you aren't sure of it and move on to the next question. If programming type questions are asked, try to get the logic at least right. Prepare your core subjects well before appearing for the technical round.
        Round 3

        HR Interview

        Interview Experience
        HR round was a little 'stress-less' than the technical round. Was asked about how the entire recruitment process was and what changes could be made. What I did during my engineering and what I learnt, why Aricent and so on.
        Interview Tips
        Be genuine, be yourself. You wouldn't want to be caught bluffing. Be sure of what you put in the resume and be ready to answer anything if asked.

        Technical Interview

        Interview Experience
        The interview was divided into 5 steps.
        (i) Introduction considering your resume.(i.e. your projects, achievements, field of interest, motivation etc.)
        (ii) Logical understanding: Various statistical graphs (e.g. normal distribution curve) were given. I was given a design failure problem related to it. Using graph I had to show a probable solution region in the graph.
        (iii) Picture understanding: I was shown a picture and had to identify the system.(It was a front propeller system of conventional aircraft. It was containing a propeller, gear box, blade angle shifting mechanism, its lubrication system, various valves etc.)
        (iv) Few topics (around 10) were written on a paper. I had to choose one topic and had to explain it in detail with examples.(one of the topic: Design optimization)
        (v) Chit-chat: They will ask you about their company. You can also ask your doubts.(So be prepared with at least 2-3 questions which you can ask them.)
        Interview Tips
        Your course projects, BTP & MTP carries a HUUUUUGE weight. Try to attach each project with a motivation behind their execution. They don't consider depth of research but they do like it if you have a proper reason behind selecting it. and most important of all Keep your head cool.
