Interview Process
Test Technical Interview HR Interview
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 Questions
    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 Questions
      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.

      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

      Interview Questions
        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 Questions
          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.

            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

                      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.

                        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.

                        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.

                        Application
                        I was interviewed on-campus at NIT Surathkal for Analog design engineer role at Texas Instruments
                        Interview Process
                        SCREENING TEST
                        Round 1

                        SCREENING TEST

                        Interview Experience
                        Texas Instruments is the first semiconductor company visiting the campus. The selection procedure involves a screening test, a technical interview and a final HR interview. Pointer cutoff will generally be 6 or 7, and PCs can even request to not have any cutoff if there are enough resources (computers) to conduct online screening test.

                        Skill Tips
                        In the interview, it is okay if you don't know the answer to any question. But try to use the hints provided by the interviewer and solve the problem. They are more concerned about your approach rather than the answer.
                        General Tips
                        Department courses such as Analog Electronics, Linear Signals and Systems, Linear Control Systems, Linear Integrated Circuits are very important. More emphasis is given to Network Theory and Feedback theory. Questions will be tricky in the sense that you might not have seen them before, but can be solved with intuition and less math. By intuition, I mean the answers follow from application of basic principles of network theory (superposition, Thevenin etc). Very good articles on Network and Feedback theory can be found at Prof. KRK Rao's website.
