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.

High Performance CPU Physical Design

The Role:

In this role, you will join the high-performance core physical design team. You will work directly with external disciplines (CAD/DFT/Architecture); for example, working directly with the CAD team to fix flow steps. You will have the opportunity to learn from experienced designers.

The Person:

The successful candidate will independently execute design work and contribute technically with a high general impact on the overall design. We are seeking someone who is innovative and eager to learn. Does this describe you? If so, then join us!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Implement working knowledge of principles of logic and transistor level circuit design, CAD tools and expertise in one of two functional areas (e.g., clocks, standard cell libraries, synthesis, place and route, electrical analysis, etc.).
  • Innovate and improve the design. Point out lower power and higher performance tradeoffs.
  • Prepare well thought out recommendations for technical reviews (e.g., design tradeoffs, bringing a list of various options to a technical review, then submitting a strong recommendation).

Preferred Experience:

  • Strong understanding of logic, circuit design, CMOS transistor design, and CAD tools for high-performance design.
  • Relevant intern/coop experience.

Academic Credentials:

MS degree in Electrical Engineering
