Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
60 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Analog
  • Section 2: Digital
  • Section 3: Aptitude
Interview Experience
There was a section wise cut-off. So, if you performed well in Digital,say, you would be shortlisted irrespective of your performance in Analog(provided, you performed bad here). There were people who got shortlisted for both profiles. Difficulty was moderate. Analog required a bit of thinking. Digital was mostly on basics. Aptitude was easy. There was negative marking for all sections.
Interview Tips
Analog: Analog Electronics, Control Systems, Analog Integrated Circuits. Basics mostly.
Digital: DECA, DSD (especially VHDL ), some microprocessor basics.
Aptitude: No preparation necessary
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
Round1: Basic questions on CMOS, MUX logic(like, make an XOR gate using 2:1 MUX), STA, and strangely on C programming(in the end)

Round2: In depth discussion of above mentioned topics. Like, relation between Vih, Vil, Vol,Voh of inverter characteristics with Vth and Vtp, How to make the curve more ideal, types power dissipation in CMOS circuits, etc. Also, make FlipFlops using MUXes, STA,etc
Interview Tips
Be clear with basics. Given a question, speak out loud and clear your approach(answer is secondary), Interviewers are nice and keep giving hints. Draw diagrams if necessary.
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
Normal HR questions. Finally, only 4 were selected: 3 from digital, 1 from analog, though many had HR interview. So, HR interview doesn't necessarily mean you are in.
Interview Tips
Donot give single line answers, not essays as well. Let it be crisp and to the point. Donot generalise anything. Be nice.

Round 1

Test

Duration
120 Minutes
No. of Questions
60 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: Test
Interview Experience
The test has three parts , Analog, Digital and aptitude. Every part has 20 questions . The technical parts are of slightly higher difficulty than what is taught generally. For the aptitude part, the questions are pretty straightforward and are simple enough to do .
Interview Tips
Check out video lectures on IITM VLSI page for analog courses.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
The questions for Digital profile are simple and if you brush through any digital systems book like Morris Mano, then you will be able to answer all the questions. For some students they asked two rounds and for others they only had one.
Interview Tips
Keep your cool. The questions will be very logical So if you don't know it ,you can solve it there
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Experience
The HR interview has questions like Why TI? Where did you hear about TI first? What inspired you to be an engineer ? What are your plans for further studies ? etc.
Interview Tips
It is supposed to be more like a conversation than an interview. So be yourself and know about your interests because if you can't answer questions about your life , then that is not a good sign.

Books
  • Digital Systems by Morris Mano,
General Tips
Talk to them . After the interview before you leave get to know a little about them like their name and other things. Since they asked you so much about yourself it does make sense to ask them back so that you will learn a little more about the company and their attitude.
Motivation for applying
It is one of the best Core companies in Electrical and Electronics that invests heavily in R&D . So I was motivated to apply

Interview Process
Test Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Interview Experience
Very easy questions, lots of time. Some basic hardware questions. Both the tests were very easy.They do not care, if you do not know any of the basics.
Interview Tips
What they mainly see, is how quickly you can understand or grab concepts, and how well you can apply them.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Experience
They basically grill you on the basics of analog VLSI design. Specifically on the frequency response of various RC circuits. Then they will look into the transient response of various RC circuits, Op-Amp stability criterion.
Interview Tips
They will help you, and you have to grab on to their hints. Good interview. Very good questions.
Skills

Skills Tested

Skill Tips
If you have a good base in VLSI circuits, then well and good. However, even if you do not have that much knowledge, but are good in analog VLSI design, and basic transient system design, they will consider you. They are looking for very strong FUNDAMENTALS on basic RC circuits.
General Tips
Basically the company looks at your analog signal domain knowledge, and your capability to grasp things quickly. Not funda intensive, but how well can you apply the little funda you have.

Round 2

HR Interview

Interview Experience
There were 2 rounds in which they asked me both HR questions as well as core field related question. They asked me to describe myself as well as tell them about my strengths and weaknesses. They also asked me about working in the southern part of India and my views on relocation.

On the technical side they asked me the following questions:

1) Design of D-latch from 2*1 mux?
2) XOR gate using minimum number of NAND gates?
3) Shift registers connections to get a particular sequence?
4) Use of Accumulator in processors like 8085?

In general the interview was more focussed on the technical side with the HR side just to make sure I will be a good fit in the company.
