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.

The Role 

Manager of team responsible for the Server Platform & Silicon Signal  and Power Integrity.  This includes High-speed simulation, its corresponding in lab correlation, 3D extraction, Platform design rules & guidance as well as setting margin Pass/Fail criteria for the high-speed buses and power delivery subsystems in AMD Server products. This individual will manage the team responsible for Server Platform & Silicon Signal and Power Integrity and will interface with Silicon Design, Phy design, Package design, Platform Architecture & Design, as well as the Server Debug leads to provide detailed technical direction, drive focus, prioritize  planning, execution, and issue debug for all aspects of AMD’s Server Platform & Silicon Signal and Power Integrity.


The Person 

The ideal candidate will have relevant working experience in new product development from a silicon design, platform design and/or product engineering discipline. The candidate should have experience both as a technical lead and/or a people manager. The candidate must also have a strong understanding of High-speed signaling and power delivery simulation and measurement. Furthermore, the candidate should have experience with driving multi-site and multi-disciplined engineering teams.  A successful candidate must have exceptional verbal and written communication skills.


  • Server Platform & Silicon Signal and Power Integrity execution leadership across AMD
  • Drive Server Platform & Silicon Signal and power Integrity simulation, in-lab correlation, generation of platform design rules & guidance as well as creating margin Pass/Fail criteria of existing and new server microprocessor SOC products.
  • Board/system-level power delivery network AC+DC simulation for low-voltage/high-current supplies.
  • System-level signal integrity simulations of future DDR5 memory bus including silicon IO, package, and board.
  • System-level signal integrity simulations of future high-speed SERDES links such as USB-4, PCIe5, xGMI3, etc. including silicon IO, package, and board.
  • Electromagnetic modeling of 3-D structures including vias, connectors, sockets.
  • Implementation of a HVM solution-space methodology.
  • A key responsibility of this position will be to work closely with the customer support organization and to support customers with signal integrity issues. 
  • Work with cross-organization teams to ensure Platform & Silicon Signal and power Integrity are in sync with overall program goals and that silicon and platform development is supported.
  • Develop and drive detailed workflow for all Platform & Silicon Signal and power Integrity activities beginning with new product pathfinding, through Server silicon product development, platform design and the phased validation process
  • Assure that all responsibilities are clearly defined across the all Platform & Silicon Signal and power Integrity team and all relevant and participating organizations
  • Lead complex debug efforts for both internal and external (i.e. customer/partner) findings to identify root cause and resolution
  • Defect prioritization and root-cause resolution plans
  • Drive solid solutions to technical issues and design challenges



  • Transmission line theory and microwave engineering concepts such as S-parameter, etc.

  • Low-voltage swing signaling technologies.

  • System-level timing analysis considering effects from silicon IO, package, and board.

  • State-of-the-art PCB stackup/construction.

  • State-of-the-art microprocessor package stackup/construction.

  • I/O driver/receiver modeling for state-of-the-art high-speed digital logic.

  • In-depth knowledge of I/O buffer modeling, specifically behavioral (IBIS-like)

  • modeling for high speed digital logic.
