      After each project, I was asked what technical skills I had gained from each of them.

      Technical questions:
      1. design question - given a code and asked to identify whether it was a sequential or combinational circuit and if sequential, how many clock cycles?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AMD in November 2015.

    Interview

    I received a 30-min phone interview from the manager. He mainly asked me questions about my resume. This position may need candidates have background in microarchitecture and some software programming. So he asked me some questions about my experience in C, and also let me introduce some other projects he was interested in. He was very kind and wouldn't let me feel pressure. However I didn't prepare well at that time.
