I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Marvell Technology in February 2012.

Interview Details – First got a phone call from recruiter then phone discussion with two managers. Then on to on site interview. All the interviewers were friendly and most of them asked about why I want to change my job and about my past experiences. There were some technical questions but they were pretty basic. Overall it was quite nice.

Interview Question – A pretty basic questions but I haven't thought about this types of questions in a while:

If you have two capacitors in parallel with the same capacitance value and there's a ideal switch between positive side of the two capacitors. Let's say Capacitor1 is charged up to voltage V1 while the switch is off. And then the switch was turned on. What is the voltage across the parallel capacitors after switch was turned on. What is the energy before and after the switch is turned on.
