Design Engineer Interview

Design Engineer

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at SanDisk.

Interview Details – The whole process would last for 6-9 hrs. It depends on how you perform. But some time they want to see how you respond to actual design problems. In that way they could see the way you think. Get yourself familiar with all your projects and previous designs would be better.

Interview Question – They don't ask general design questions. More like custom design encounters.   Answer Question

I interviewed at SanDisk in August 2013.

Interview Details – The Hiring process was of 1 written test,2 technical interview,1 HR interview.
Written test contained 15 aptitude and 20 technical questions for which basics of digital electronics is necessary..
In two technical interview they mostly concentrated how good am in dealing with digital circuits....
They also asked some puzzles which everyone can do with some logic thinking...
Some questions like design a system with frequency 1/3rd the freq of clk with 50% dutycycle,double the freq so on.....
HR interview was very friendly type of interview no need to bother about that....
ALL THE BEST.....

Interview Question – Doubling the clock freq is unexpected ques for me which took some time to solve but really challenging......   View Answer
