Interview Details – 3 Interview on Phone

Interview Questions

  • Round 1
    1- Two to Three Q's on Projects done
    2- Designing Q - Consider inputs coming at every clock. I want the output at time = t to give me sum of all nos coming before that time. (Adder is normal adder with latency 1)
    3- Designing Q - Consider the same output needed, but adder has a latency of 2. So input is taken at every clock and output is given at every clock. But Input at t=0 is received at output at t=2, input at t=1 is received at output at t=3...

  • Round 2
    1- RTL coding
    2- C, C++ pointer questions
    3- how to do VHDL coding
    4- FSM Sequence detector
    5- How will you verify the FSM code
    6- Design Using Shift Registers
    7- How will you code this
