    Written round separate for Hardware and Software profiles for an hour each. You could write only one. Maybe around 100 from EC/EE attended the test as there was a pointer cutoff of 8.

        Skill Tips
        1) No aptitude preparation at all. This wan't required also as nVIDIA is a core Electronics company.<br /> 2) Preparation for written test : Review of all digital electronics and related courses taken during three years of ECE (VLSID, DSD, MP, DECA).<br /> 3) Nothing of analog electronics or linear systems asked in the test. Exclude such preparation if you want to write the nVIDIA Hardware test.<br /> 4) Have at least one Computer Architecture related project in your resume and be ready to speak on it.<br /> 5) Knowledge of VHDL/Verilog is a huge plus.
        General Tips
        The overall experience was rewarding at the end of it, but it was an exhausting process. All the waiting about for your interviews and results will drain your mental energy. I had a four hour wait in the TNP for my name to be called for the tech interview (I was the last to be interviewed). Even though it helps that you can ask from the previous candidates about what transpired in their interview, the wait can get really tiring. Also, be sure that as the afternoon progresses, even the panelists get tired of successive interviews, so there is an added challenge to make sure to be noticed. The one advantage of late Tech and HR rounds was that I had to wait for a very less time for the results. But at last after getting the offer, nothing matters much.

        For the test, there will be a variety of questions over the entire scope of digital electronics. Expect STA, CMOS Implementation, Comp. Arch. basics, Memory models (we had a cache latency question), sequential circuits and synchronization, and even a question on C coding. So go into the test with a thorough revision of the 4 courses: DSD, MP, VLSID and DECA. The C question will be a comparatively easy one.

        For the technical interview, "We've already tested your basic technical skills in the test. We want to know more about what you've worked on." was the first statement from the interviewer. So be prepared to explain any of your projects listed in your resume in detail. It helps if you have some project related to Computer Architecture to speak on. Of course there will be one or two technical questions after to probe the depth of your knowledge.

                General Tips
                As it was 1 day process it was not that exhausting. But the hard work paid off. So it was a happy day. Their was lot of tension too during the process, not during my interview but looking at others performance. The competition is too much .The 1st and 2nd round was purely technical so it was challenging. HR was really chilled out.

                                          nvidia do lot of systems work ... so not just me for everyone who attended interview ... we were asked OS architecture parallel programming kind of things ,,,,,, no algorithm or DS :)
                                          General Tips
                                          have 7+(CGPA) to be safe ... but that's about it ... make sure u do good job in your project it really matters..... few months before placements just do algo DS .... in depth ... for DS(data structure) things like trees, list, heap ... cover a lot of problems in depth . ....... for algorithm do Dynamic programming very important technical interview very likely will have it.... do some greedy ... sorting ... then you’ll b good to clear any interview
