Interview Experience

It consists of two parts - 1. Domain test 2. Aptitude Test.
The domain test was divided into two subdivisions. The first part focussed on c/c++ basic questions. The second part focussed on the core domain questions. Major topics to focus on were op-amps, filters, digital logic design. This section was for around 30 minutes. The aptitude test lasted for about 30 minutes. The difficulty level was easy.

Interview Experience


It started with panelists introducing themselves, followed by my introduction. After this, they asked to speak about my projects. Firstly I have them gist about my three projects, 2 of my projects were on embedded domain while one was on Deep learning application. They were very much interested in one of my projects and asked me a lot of domain-specific questions about it. They asked me about my contributions to it, as well as basic logic applied and how were the hardware specifications and all done.

After this, they asked me about domain-related questions. They asked me about Nyquist theory and the types of DAC converters. They wanted to check on my application-based logic. For example, one of my panelists told me that I am given a temperature sensor and a development board and how will I acquire the data from it. Other than this, they also asked if I was given resistors, diodes, capacitors how will I reduced 12V to 6V.

After this, they asked me to explain machine learning, deep learning, and article intelligence in Layman terms. They also asked about which all new technologies I can implement on traffic barrier. They kept drilling me on my answers and kept giving me hints if I was close to the accepted answers. Furthermore, the interview ended by asking me about my 5-year career plan, and whether I want to do masters or no.

Interview Experience

It started off with a very friendly discussion about myself. Later on, the panelist asked me to speak on one of my projects. They also did ask about my family background as well. In the end, they asked me if I had any questions, I asked them whether John Deere only focuses on the agriculture domain only for some other domain as well.

Just be confident and be very comfortable. Even if your answer is wrong, try to answer the questions. If one wants to focus on core- domain, make sure your basic concepts are clear. Major topics to focus on are analog circuit design, embedded and measurements and instrumentation.
