About the test

The Embedded Systems and C online test assesses candidates' knowledge of embedded systems and the C programming language.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good embedded systems/software engineer needs to know how to design, develop, test, and maintain embedded systems. They need to be familiar with hardware used for embedded systems, technologies used for connecting embedded devices and know how to develop software required to run the system using the C programming language.

This online test requires candidates to answer multiple-choice and fill the blanks questions about hardware and software used in embedded devices, and to solve coding problems in C.

Sample public questions

10 min

Implement the function find_roots to find the roots of the quadratic equation: ax2 + bx + c = 0. The function can assign the roots to the values pointed by root1 and root2 in any order. If the equation has only one solution, the function should assign that solution as both roots. The equation will always have at least one solution.

The roots of the quadratic equation can be found with the following formula: A quadratic equation.

For example, find_roots(2, 10, 8) should assign -1,-4 or -4 and -1 to the values pointed by root1 and root2 as the roots of the equation 2x2 + 10x + 8 = 0 are -1 and -4.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
