Analog Design Engineer Interview

Analog Design Engineer
Austin, TX

The process took 5 days - interviewed at Broadcom in March 2010.

Interview Details – Contacted by Hiring Manager and had an informal phone conversation initially to gauge interest from both sides. Phone interview with a Design Engineer within the group a couple days later which asked basic questions about IC design and circuits (RLC circuits, matching, GBW, amplifiers, etc.). Brought on-site and had multiple 1:1 interviews during the day as well as one 2:1 interview. All asked questions about basic analog and RF IC design as well as things about my resume. Tried to take things from my resume and ask very specific details about everything on it and would not accept a general answer. Interview ended with Design Manager and another round of questions about amplifier design with vague/general questions and expecting very specific answers without giving enough information. Interview lasted a total of about 4 hours. Never heard back from them.

Interview Question – Can you draw a circuit to bias the gate of a cascode device? (No mention of supply limitation, threshold voltages, care in tracking PVT variations, or anything else. Just, draw a circuit to bias the gate of a cascode device.)   View Answer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Broadcom in April 2008.

First was basc analog circuit design, OPAMP and other related stuff, folloewed by question from my filed, i.e. high speed circuit design. Next this was followed by more specilalized question. Some testing related questions were also asked.
