    Analog Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Texas Instruments in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was for an internship during summers-2012 in Texas Instruments, Bangalore. There was a written test first comprising of questions from subjects like Signals & Systems, Circuit Theory, Control Theory, Probability & Analog Electronics. Those who qualified were selected for the technical interview.
    The interview comprised of more technical questions from the same subjects as before, only this time it was very conceptual & involved questions which though could be answered orally without making any calculations, but needed decent understanding of the subject. They were a bit confusing as well & there was considerable chance of making errors too, errors which you normally wouldn't have made.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Texas Instruments in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    First round is the written test, i took digital design but you have a choice of taking analog and so on.. you get questions ranging from basic digital electronics to vlsi and hdl, with general course questions as well in the mix.. its like an all round electronics paper with a bias towards digital design. you also have a general aptitude paper which you should be able to answer without too much preparation. apply your knowledge and you would be able to get through this round easily.

    the next is the tech round, where they take a look at your resume and ask about your projects, then move onto looking at your thinking process behind a few of your test answers (i guess to eliminate the chance of you fluking through), and if you answered your paper with fair confidence you shouldnt have a problem. the interviewer mentioned in my case that my tech answers were average but my aptitude was very high which is why i was so high on their list..

    The third round is a "casual" hr round, you are asked about your plans for the future, what your parents do for a living and so on. no issues here at all.

    Interview Questions

    First was the pre placement talk... they spoke about the company and what they look for in candidates. Then we had a written IQ/analytical thinking test, consisting of one general puzzle, and one data-structure related puzzle. Then we had a group problem solving exercise. The problem statement was: How are you going to increase India’s medal haul at the next Olympics to 20. We were supposed to think individually for five minutes, discuss for 8, and one of us would go and present for 2 minutes. Finally we had interviews with three panellists; mine lasted an hour.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Texas Instruments in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    I cleared the aptitude test conducted in T&P of our college.
    It was a bit easier than the actual interview by the company experts. I found the technical part very easy. There were choices for selecting the subsection in the technical section of apti. Analog application associates,digital n its application,technical sales,etc. I went for AAA section which i found easier than the aptitude logical n reasoning section.
    But as expected, the interview was upto the reputation of the company. There were 2 interviews, technical followed by HR. Technical was based on very basics of electronics and those guys were clever enough to make us jumble in our answers.
