    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AMD in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started out with a couple of telephone interviews. The interviews focused on skills, knowledge, and similar normal interview questions. The people I talked to spent a lot of time talking about the organization they wanted me to join and the challenges they were facing, and they were very upfront.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at AMD in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The resume was forwarded by an internal contact. So, the interview setup/scheduling was relatively quick over email.
    3 rounds of interview: two with the team members and one with the director.

    The interview with ~7 team members was mainly technical. Question on:
    Digital design principles: setup/hold times and ways to address setup/hold time issues, state machines, finding issues with digital circuits, other logic design questions
    C: handling different endianness, embedded C code optimization issues
    System Verilog questions
    Logical puzzles

    After the first two rounds the hiring manager indicated that the feedback was good and he would like me to come in to meet the director.

    It took about 2 weeks from that point to receive an offer

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was really difficult but some of the questions on System Verilog were very specialized /infrequntly used cases.   Answer Question
