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.

Senior Reliability NPI Engineer

The Role:

Join a global product reliability team that drives silicon qualifications for new CPU, APU, GPU and ASIC products. This position is a highly visible Senior Engineering role that defines and executes reliability solutions to align with AMD product and customer requirements. This position provides influence that mandates strong analytical and technical skills. This role works closely with AMD engineering teams and communicates regularly with foundries and customers to guide the reliability requirements of current and future products.

The Person:

  • The Engineer will possess technical authority in a fast paced, dynamic environment that requires decision making at strategic and tactical levels.
  • Substantiated successes working in product Quality and Reliability, with strong familiarity of Semiconductor IC Product Development, Silicon Fab process, high-volume manufacturing, external supplier and customer interactions, and project management.
  • A self-motivated, standout colleague who focuses on collaboration, team building, and rapidly growing team success.
  • Strong communication proficiency including data presentation.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Starting at early product development stages, establish comprehensive HTOL silicon qualification plans for early reliability assessment studies and final product qualification testing.
  • Tackle leadership of planning and execution of reliability activities throughout development, qualification, production-ramp and sustaining.
  • Partner with offshore factories and reliability labs during reliability test qualification.
  • Coordinate debug and analysis of reliability observations, drive root cause and corrective actions working in collaboration with Engineering business units and Foundry partners.
  • Perform reliability modeling estimations across varying usage and operating life conditions; model product lifetime conditions using Weibull Modeling.
  • Publish qualification reports both internally and with end customers.
  • Work with Foundry partners to align AMD product qualification requirements and technical risk assessments to ensure the foundry technology reliability envelope aligns with AMD design and IP portfolio.

Preferred Experience:

  • Knowledge of industry standard stress test methodologies (JEDEC, AEC).
  • Semiconductor fabrication and device physics knowledge.
  • Understanding of Intrinsic and Extrinsic silicon reliability mechanisms, their process interactions and acceleration models.
  • Experience with Silicon Failure Analysis methods and interpreting results.
  • Proficiency using statistical analysis software with reliability model experience.
  • Substantiated ability of use of modeling techniques to estimate intrinsic and extrinsic lifetimes, determine burn-in conditions, device degradation models for production guard bands, and generate lifetime projections.
  • Experience with MCC systems and validating HTOL hardware, a plus.
  • Knowledge of test pattern architecture and developing programs to enable stress testing, a plus.

Academic Credentials:

  • BS/MS or PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science or equivalent.
