Senior ASIC Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Applied Micro Circuits in May 2009.

Interview Details – Phone interview was quite brief (about 10~15min). They asked about my background and recent work, no technical questions. In a few days, they asked me to come for an onsite interview. Questions were not tough, fairly reasonable undergraduate level. I thought I did not bad, but it turned out that I should have been perfect, 'cause the questions were easy. Questions were quite fundamental things, so any missed answer might make them think I am on the shallow basis without through fundamentals.
