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.

Power Systems Design Co-op / Intern 


The Role:


In the Datacenter and GPU Accelerated Processing Division, we design high-technology platforms for world-class products based on AMD’s Graphics Processing Units (GPU’s). Our team plays a major part in architecting and shaping every graphics board offered by AMD.

We design cutting-edge power converters for our discrete graphics boards that retail around the world. Facing always more stringent demands in terms of the current level, efficiency, and responsiveness, these designs are essential to maximize the performance from our GPU’s in an efficient and cost-effective manner.


 Key Responsibilities:


The successful candidate would be responsible for supporting the architecture, design, analysis, and verification of power systems intended for powering high performance CPUs/GPUs/APUs.  The engineer will work with cross-functional teams to design and implement a full power delivery network, model and validate PDN impedance and droop targets, and verify power supply integrity using lab and in-situ silicon measurements.  In addition, the candidate is expected to work with the Board Validation team to develop procedures to perform system-level validation for characterizing design margins on the power domains.




  • Technical understanding of power supply architectures and PDN in server, OAM, and PCIe environments
  • Understanding and experience with multi-phase buck/buck-boost regulators, digital PWM controllers, bus converters, LDOs, PMICs, charge pumps, ADCs & DACs, etc
  • Working knowledge of 2D/2.5D EM simulation tools such as Sigrity’s PowerDC, PowerSI, SiWave or equivalent
  • Knowledge of high frequency magnetics design for power electronics 
  • Familiarity with PCB design tools such as OrCAD or Allegro
  • Ability to work with multiple cross functional teams
  • Proficiency with lab equipment such as oscilloscope, eload, function generator, etc.
  • Experience with analog circuit modeling and simulation tools (e.g. Simplis, PSpice, HSpice etc.)
  • Must be a team player with good written and verbal communication skills
  • Knowledge of AMD’s SVIx power management interface


Education and Experience:

  • 2+ years of relevant EE and Power design classes
