I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Ambarella (Los Angeles, CA) in Feb 2017

Interview

I got contacted by Ambarella HR one week after I submitted my resume at school career fair. I was scheduled to talk with a senior engineer from the ASIC design team. He started with general questions about my resume, went into details of several projects I listed. Then he began to ask technical questions about Verilog basics, bits operation, digital circuits and etc. The question is very basic but covers a lot. The guys who talked to me was very nice and patient that he would guide me through the thinking process when I got stuck at his questions. Although I managed to answered most of his questions, I did't feel I did good enough to get the job. After my first phone screen, I had not heard from them EVER again. I did not receive any email regarding my application progress nor did I get any rejection letter. Neither did the HR replied to any of my email ever since. Such irrespective attitude toward their applicant reflects their company culture from my personal opinion.

Interview Questions
  • What's hold time and setup time? When does setup and hold time violation happen?
  • Please specify three ways to solve setup and hold time violation and how would you implement your solutions in verilog?
  • What is the difference between blocking and non-blocking operation in Verilog? When will you use them?
  • How would you build a sequential block and combinational block in verilog? what will you use "always@ * "?
  • How would you build a 4 to 1 mux with only 2 to 1 mux modules?
  • Give me the number X in its two's complement form.
  • Tell me whether this sequential block is synchronizes or asychronized.
