    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Somerset, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Analog Devices in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume during a Career Fair, where I was asked some digital design questions on-spot.
    I got a on campus interview call the very next day. On campus interview was 1 hour long. Mostly questions related to Floating Point Binary Arithmetic, Setup hold time, Verilog, State machines etc.
    Following this I got 2 telephonic interviews. None of them were scheduled. Questions asked basically related to projects, internship, DFT algorithms, design problems like clock/2 and clock/3, timing etc.

    Finally, I was called for an onsite interview to Somerset, New Jersey. I had 7 interviews 45 mins each.
    Questions were asked from the following areas Latches - Flip Flops, Timing, FIFO, Digital design, DFT, Verification, Computer Architecture and ASIC Design Flow.

    The entire interview process was quite good and informative. The interviewers were friendly and very helpful.

    Interview Questions
    • I found most of the questions pretty simple. I am categorizing all the questions below for reference.

      1. Latches - Flip Flops

          1. Basic operation
          2. Setup and hold time - especially for latch
          3. Meta stability
          4. Code in verilog
          5. How to avoid unintentional latches
          7. Problems with SR latch and how are they solved

      2. FIFO

          1. Constraints on reading and writing pointer
          2. Size of fifo for given input and output frequencies
          3. FIFO for data and address buses
          4. How to synchronize?

      3. Design
          1. Asynchronous and synchronous reset in Flip Flops
          2. Data(D1) following data(D) while going low (asynchronous) but synchronous with clock while going high
          3. ADC Design
             4. Sensitivity list - if missed what is implication on gate level simulation
          5. Clock by three

      4. DFT
          1. Explain DFT
          2. Scan Chains and Scan FFs
          3. Fault models
          4. Delay fault
          5. Testing of two clock counters by adding logic in between to reduce overall time. (First counts from 0 to 255. For every 256 counts in first seconds increments its counter by 1.)

      5. Verification
          1. Test plan
          2. Assertions
          3. Coverage - when will you stop verification
          4. Layered test bench
          5. Randomization
          6. Difference between rand and randc.
          7. where is randc used? - decoder verification
          8. Classes and objects

      7. Computer Architecture
          1. Explain stages of pipeline
          2. Cache design
          3. Associativity of cache

      8. ASIC
          1. Explain ASIC flow
          2. Explain DRC and LVS
          3. Explain synthesis script
              1. Constraints
              2. Goals
              3. clock
              4. setup and hold time

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Analog Devices in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Contacted a team member through LinkedIn and applied on ADI's website. I got two phone screens and an on-site interview. The phone interviews involved some basic questions about background and a few technical questions about op amp circtuits and feedback around op amp. After that, I was invited for an all day, on-site interview. During this interview, I interviewed with each member of the team (5+ hrs). I was offered the position once all interviews were completed and my manager received positive feedback.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were technical questions I expected (step response for a high-pass or low-pass RC filter, op amp circuits, etc.). One interview was different in that, he asked me to explain one of my projects to him as if he were a layman with no technical expertise (using whiteboard).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I had another offer from a different company at the time. I was unable to negotiate the salary, but they did increase the signing bonus.
