What you do at AMD changes everything 

At AMD, we push the boundaries of what is possible.  We believe in changing the world for the better by driving innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies – building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data center. 

Developing great technology takes more than talent: it takes amazing people who understand collaboration, respect, and who will go the “extra mile” to achieve unthinkable results.  It takes people who have the passion and desire to disrupt the status quo, push boundaries, deliver innovation, and change the world.   If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

CPU Static Timing Engineer - 85081

The Role:

As a key contributor to the AMD Zen CPU core team, you will help bring the latest generation of our industry-leading processor architecture to market. Working across multiple engineering teams and disciplines, you will help define timing goals, coordinate closure activities, and work closely with our SoC customers to deliver products with unparalleled performance and efficiency.

The Person:

A successful candidate will possess excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills; enjoy working in a technically diverse and multi-functional team environment; excel in a fast-paced and rapidly challenging field using state of the art tools and technology. Does this describe you? If so, then join us!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work with physical design, DFT, and SoC teams to understand, document, and validate IP and hierarchical block timing requirements
  • Align with bounding-box team on aggressive but achievable performance goals across operating conditions
  • Support regular static timing analysis runs at all levels of core IP hierarchy
  • Drive final IP timing closure through top-level ECO generation and close coordination with hierarchical IP owners
  • Drive ongoing development of timing flow automation and metric data collection
  • Document IP/SoC timing goals, margin requirements, and final signoff criteria

Preferred Experience:

  • Knowledge of noise, cross-talk, process margining, and all other timing-related aspects of silicon design
  • Experience with multi-scenario and multi-voltage timing closure
  • Experience with static timing closure of high-performance IP in deep submicron process nodes
  • Understanding of clock-domain-crossing techniques and validation methods
