Sakshi Sharma’s NXP Semiconductor Interview Experience

“Sakshi Sharma “ who was placed at “NXP” talks about her interview experience and some other tips to prepare for placement season. Check out what she says about placement season.

Profile Offered: Hardware Designer

Cgpa cutoff:  7.5

Interview difficulty level: 7/10 (1-very easy, 10-very Difficult)

Here are the questions we asked from Sakshi to know about her interview experience.

Question 1: Introduce yourself to our readers like you introduced yourself to the panellist.

Answer 1: My name is Sakshi Sharma. I was born and brought up in Jalandhar City which is well known for its sports goods industry across India. The reason I chose ECE was that for me electronics is fascinating. Power is old but electronics is new every day. Apart from college courses, I did an online MIT course on Python. Also, I did a vocational training in Verilog and FPGA from DKOP Labs, Noida. Talking about my family, my father is a P.hD in Mathematics and my mother is a P.hD in Music Instrumental. I believe in the saying that ‘Everything happens for a reason’ and because of which I have been able to maintain a positive attitude in life which I believe is one of my strengths. Apart from studies, I have interests in psychology and fashion designing. My life’s aim is to be the best version of me like my father because I don’t want to survive but to succeed in the field I work in.

Question 2: Describe Your written test experience specifying the number of rounds, details of each round and type of test platform ( If online mention the type of test platform eg. Hackereart, CoCubes, Amcat etc).

Answer: The test consisted of 12 to 13 questions. Each carrying different marks. Overall the test was little tough. Questions on static timing analysis(2 questions), opamps in RLC circuit, waveform drawing at different nodes in a circuit depending on changes in voltage etc(2), counter designing based on the situation given(2/3), 5 variable k-map(1) etc were asked. The questions could have been solved but the time provided was limited(75 mins i guess). So, it is difficult to attempt all. Try to attempt the entire question even if you are unable to attempt some(depending on the marking scheme).

Question 3: Describe your all technical interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.

Answer: Only one round was conducted. My first words in the interview were regarding the presentation conducted by them regarding the company and what all I actually liked and learnt from it (which was basically to improve my practical knowledge). Then I was asked to introduce myself and questions based on what I said were asked like about family, training, role model. Next, I was asked some practical questions like “How many ports are there in USB?” CMOS in practical means and problems, nanotechnology used these days etc. Questions regarding CMOS, power dissipation in it, questions in the written test were asked. At the end, I asked all my queries regarding the job and company. (In other panels, the projects performed till now were asked to explain).

Question 4: Describe your all HR interviews specifying number of rounds and details of each round.

Answer: Ther was only one HR round. I was asked about my technical interview, how it went, about my family, my interests and questions based on that. Like I said I have an interest in fashion designing and psychology. So I was asked, “If you are given 10 boys and 10 girls, how many different styles you will dress them in?”, “Which fashion designer you follow?” etc. Apart from this, I was asked I was asked if I had a backup option, which I had none as I was preparing only for core companies and did not sit for other companies. Next, ” who else do I think are worth the job ” to which I answered few names and the reason why I think they deserve. These were some of the questions asked.

Question 5: What do you think were key factors for your selection?

Answer: Right attitude, interest in the field and eagerness to increase practical knowledge.

Question 6: What would you like to advise juniors for technical skills they should develop for this company?

Answer: First of all, increase your practical knowledge. Many panellists ask you questions to test your practical knowledge regarding the field to which the company belongs. Apart from this, focus on subjects like CMOS, Digital, LICA. The important topic usually asked is Static Timing Analysis which is not taught in college. Take its online lectures if required. Also, do some projects which are worth displaying.

Question 6: What would you like to advise juniors for cracking HR round of this company?

Answer: Be careful of what you say. Speak slowly and with enthusiasm.The way you present yourself and how you speak is a gist of your entire personality, which matters even more than your education in the field.
