Irvine, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Broadcom in November 2013.

Interview Details – First interview was by phone which lasted around 40 minutes. From there they ask you to go on-site where for around 6 hours they grill you on brain teasers and technical questions. There were a few behavioral questions, but quite minimal. Overall you need to remember your material from classes and do some outside reading for preparation.

Interview Question – Endianness differences depending on which hardware and using cascading adders.   Answer Question
