Member of technical staff interview questions shared by candidates
Explain CDC and how can it be addressed?
Add a synchronizer to avoid MTBF timing failures that could chain into downstream logic on the receiving clock domain. Its best that the synchornizer be a library cell to minimize the chance the ck->q delay will extend and fail in the next cell. In very high speed circiuts synchronizer chains may be more than two flops as in order to reach the MTBF year goal.
Manager interview was the hardest section, where the team supervisor said I can skip behavioral questions, and started to challenge with asking too many quick questions and describing the most unexpected things happened in the fields recently and asked about the recommended solutions.
- questions related to MTBF - questiona related to deaign of fsm for a problem - questions related to timing - question related to layout. they asked me to roughly partition a given rtl .
