- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Silicon Laboratories in May 2014.Interview Details
Applied on linkedin. Was contacted by a recruiter in a week and scheduled a phone interview on the next day. They basically asked questions from my projects that I mentioned on my resume. And also about different tools that I have used. And there were questions like, what problems did you face when doing this particular project, how did you deal with it etc. They asked me about all the projects on the resume which were relevant to the role. It was not so difficult.
They flew me to Boston for an onsite after 2 weeks. Had 5 rounds - all technical. It started off with a tour of their office and different engineering teams working there. The rounds were on RF concepts, PCB Design, Power System Design, C Programming and Wireless Networks.
It was a good experience overall, except that I did not have PCB Design experience. And that was the reason they said, they wouldn't move further in the process.Interview Questions
