I gave 3 phone call interviews:

Tell me about yourself. Then he asked me to explain one project from my resume. Then he started telling me information about their team and what they do. They were working on NAND Flash tech. Then he asked me about difference between SSD and harddisk., where exactly ssd is used.
Second round:
This round was with manager. He repeated same questions. Only different question was:
Expalin me working of CPU and memory as if you are explaining some dumb person.

Third round:
This one was somewhat lengthy almost 45 minutes. First 2 were just 25-30 mins. He started reviewing my skills that I had put on my resume. He spent 10 mins on pipeline, stalling forwarding. Then he asked me setup/hold time questions. Then difference between RISC and CISC. Flip flop vs latch. comb Vs seq. why do we use pmos and nmos in transmission gate?

This all happened in 4-5 days and they took 2 weeks to gave me decision.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Intel Corporation in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    First step is on-campus interview. And then I was invited to Oregon for on-site interview. First I give one hour phd talk and then met with 5 people for 1:1 interview. They asked some questions about behavior and technology. It is really good interview experience. They are looking for people who can cooperate with the other people since this job needs lots to work with the other group.
