TECHNICAL

40 qs are there in technical, questions on diodes were there, such as PIV of center tapped. Band gap of Silicon, what type of bonding in semiconductors and related to these. Just be familiar with the BTech Gate Basics.There was a section on eletromagnetics and electrdynamics. 10 very basic questions were there. This is for electrical part.
