    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Broadcom.

    Interview

    This was through campus recruitment. Had two rounds of interviews, mostly technical. I was asked questions on my final year project which was quite different from the role I was applying for. The interviewers were very friendly and I ended up working under one of the interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about detecting a pattern, DMA and Computer Architecture. Few questions were also asked about timing analysis, detecting critical path and solving for setup and hold violations   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Fixed benefits, no negotiation.
