    RFIC Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at pSemi.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by HR shortly after. The recruiter was very nice and accomodating throughout the process. Over the next 4 weeks I had a total of 4 technical phone interviews for 2 different design groups. The interviews covered RF fundamentals, many RF switch questions, transistors, transmission lines, etc. I have not heard back yet from the last phone screen, but I have accepted an offer from another company during this interview process so I am out of consideration regardless.

    Interview Questions

    • What determines switching speed?   1 Answer
    • Why can you get lower loss with silicon on insulator?   1 Answer
    • FET Vds max is 3V but your bias is 10V, what do you do to use this bias voltage?   1 Answer
