    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Analog Bits in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    They contacted me the day after I submitted my application. The process was very fast. The phone interview went very well, all the questions were digital, the interviewer told me that they will contact me for setting up onsite interview for following week. Onsite interview questions were basic questions too both in analog and digital.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask very basic questions, mostly digital. Questions are all the same as ones people mentioned before.
      How to build frequency divider, NAND, NOR, INV,...

    Entry Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Analog Bits in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I emailed my resume to the email specified on their website. Got a phone call in 2 days an scheduled a phone interview after 2weeks. They called on time and started asking questions. I felt that the interviewer was hurry and talked fast.

    Interview Questions
    • What happens if you connect inductors after the supplies(VDD,VSS) to an inverter.What happens if I give -2V at the output of the inverter- with L and without L. The interviewer was very rude in the way he asked the questions and talked to me, from which I felt that I did not like their work culture/people- as a college graduate, we expect people/seniors to be patient or supportive rather than harsh. Overall, I don't recommend this.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Analog Bits in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    They asked for transcript from my schools and then scheduled a phone interview. The interviewer mostly just wanted my answers and didn't really care about what is on my resume.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked things like if the source of NMOS is open, what is the voltage at the source if the gate and drain at 3 and 5V. If the gate of inverter is connected through a resistor to a output, what is the output voltage? Also things related to ring oscillator. Mostly just digital stuff, nothing analog like others have said.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    Submit the resume through school's career website and one HR called to schedule an telephone interview. An indian enginner interviews me that day and asked one question. He asked for CMOS, if Vg=3 V, Vd=5 V, source is floating. What is the source voltage. And if Vg=0 V, the what about source voltage.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not get the right answer for the second question and he continuously wants me to get the right result. After several minutes, this interview ends in that way   Answer Question

    Mixed Signal IC Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Analog Bits.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruitment e-mail. Was scheduled for phone interview. Interviewer notified me he was in a rush so I should keep my answers brief and be as quick as possible, which made for an uncomfortable interview. Questions were similar to other posted interviews here (voltage at open node of NMOS, 1/4 black and 3/4 white rotating disk etc.) I had prepared extensively for analog interview questions as the recruitment flier advertised Analog Bits as an analog/mixed signal company, but it's a PURELY digital company and interview. I was scolded several times for bringing up analog effects and therefore delaying my interviewer from getting to his meeting. For other questions (building CMOS circuits), it felt like they wanted you to already know the answer instead of working through the problem. Overall a very rude, uncomfortable, and uninspiring interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • 1) Given an NMOS, 5V on Drain, 4V on Gate, what is voltage on source?

      2) What happens when using a NMOS to pull up and/or a PMOS to pull down?

      3) Given a rotating disk that's 1/4 black and 3/4 white, assume you have two sensors 90 degrees apart. How can you determine the direction the disk is rotating (clockwise vs counterclockwise) with some cmos circuit?
