    Analog Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Interview had basic questions on analog design revolving around capacitor, resistor circuits, MOS amplifiers and op amps. The questions asked are very easy once your fundamentals (i.e. linear model MOS, gain of amplifiers, concept of output and input impedance) are clear. Go through your approach for reaching the solution and instead of applying brute force calculations.

    Interview Questions

    • A resistor and capacitor circuit and asked me the current going through a particular branch as a function of time. Looked complicated at first but was a simple application of KCL.   Answer Question

    Digital Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Delhi (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Texas Instruments (New Delhi (India)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    They conducted a written test in which a good 30% students for shortlisted for Analog Engineer and Digital Engineer. Cutoff was 40% marks. We heard that they had a good number of vacancies that year. Interview was average and they ask about your favourite topics and then start quizzing. There were 2 technical interview rounds followed by HR round.

    However, I reached till the final technical round (which lasted some 55 minutes), another student (who was the last person to be interviewed) went in. Interview started for this guy.

    But when I came out of the interview cabin, the results were already declared! (TI-BANGALORE DID NOT CONSIDER MY INTERVIEW AND OBVIOUSLY THAT GUY'S INTERVIEW TOO). The biggest irony is that, that guy was still being interviewed when the new recruits were celebrating outside!

    We were made a fool just to be in waiting for 4 long hours. And after the wait was over, they had already made up their mind to recruit among the students who interviewed before us ... Shocking! Unexpected from TI! Hope they were more responsible

    Interview Questions

    • Round 1:-
      Logic Families,
      Mux, Demux,
      In CMOS circuits, which among tphl and tplh is longer? And why?
      Divide-by-3 counter,

      Round 2:- (after a wait of the futile 4 hours)
      Significance of 'reset' signal in digital circuits
      Given a step input to a low pass filter, high pass filter and band pass filter respectively, what do you expect the output to look like?
      Dissimilate a square wave into its harmonics (this question because I had mentioned signal processing projects in my resume)
      Now a days we have a large number of cells in logic blocks? What do you think is the approach to detect an error in such a case?
