Aaa Interview

Pune

I applied in-person and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2012.

Interview Details It is not as smooth as might want. However, the interview is quite good. Fully technical. Questions are very tough. The written round is not easy if you go and sit directly. The questions involve everything in analog domain right from diodes to filters. The interview questions are logical but difficult if you have no prior knowledge of the subject.

Interview Question – Design a multivibrator without opamp.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Texas Instruments in December 2011.

Interview Details Phase 1- Objective written test
Very easy questions, lots of time. Some basic hardware questions. Both the tests were very easy.None They do not care, if you do not know any of the basics. What they mainly see, is how quickly you can understand or grab concepts, and how well you can apply them.
Phase 2 -Personal Interview
Thery basically grill you on the basics of analog VLSI design. Specifically on the frequency response of various RC circuits. Then they will look into the transient response of various RC circuits, Op-Amp stability criterion.They will help you, and you have to grab on to their hints. Good interview. Very good questions

Intern Interview

Intern
Ghaziabad

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in August 2012.

Interview Details The process began with a pre- placement talk some 15 days before the interviews at the college campus. The company values, goals and stature were discussed upon.
The actual selection process began with an aptitude test- regular CAT (Common Admission Test) level questions. There were decision making questions too which had no right or wrong answers- your perception about various situations were checked, which maybe reflected your job- fitness for Texas Instruments.
This round was followed by two rounds of interviews- one HR, and another general. The HR was austere, and the interviewer from the other round was friendly- it was overall a very satisfying experience.

Interview Question – "What were the questions asked to you in the earlier round- and how would you answer them if I asked you the same questions this round?"   View Answer

Intern Interview

Intern
Patna, Orissa

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Texas Instruments in October 2011.

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 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..

Interview Question – About all band pass filter   Answer Question

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 Question – since my tech answers werent very great and i wasnt confident of them i didnt expect them to ask me anything from the paper.. and the question he did ask was one i was stumped by but somehow had guessed the answer right.. unfortunately i dont remember the exact question   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – because i am working in a large scale project that is going international, hence unfortunately could not accept
