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 AMD Cores design & verification group develops high-end, next generation CPU’s that power different AMD SoC’s which are eventually set to change the course of how computing is visualized. The engineering teams are distributed across Canada, US and India.  The CPU verification team in India is one of AMD India’s first teams & involved in contributing to the tape out of numerous AMD systems. As part of the CPU Design Verification team, our team will be responsible for the maintainability & scalability of RTL & testbench environment that is used for development & verification of the design.  This is built up from basics like how work spaces are setup, how IPs are integrated and interacted in a System-On-Chip environment, how the tools/flows are developed to automate processes, and how tests are written and regressed.  As always, the team is dedicated to come up with innovative solution to overcome new challenges related to specific project requirements and time-to-market.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

• Will work with different stake holders in getting a thorough understanding of high level feature/s & get clarification(if any). Also evaluate cross-feature dependencies.

• After feature understanding, populate high level testplan that details out how we plan(Stimulus, debug, coverage) to verify the feature & what we cover/don’t cover as a part of the feature verification. Get it reviewed & incorporate feedback.

• Develop assembly(X86) level test cases to target the feature bringup. Debug fails(debug needs an understanding of computer architecture, micro-architecture & TB environment), file RTL/Verif bugs.

• After bringup completion, work on developing exerciser/random stimulus which help us evaluate cross-feature behavior by running regression. Debug if there are any fails.

• Ensure feature health is stable & in parallel work on evaluating stimulus coverage. If needed, tweak/add stimulus as appropriate.

• If the feature demands, then develop SV checker & SV coverpoints. All this while learning & understanding uarch is an integral part.

• Work on ensuring 100% FCOV that might involve developing new stimulus. Also it might demand working with other feature owners to close on cross-feature coverage. Work on microcode coverage.

• Interact with SoC folks & close on the SoC callout’s issued during testplanning.

• On a need basis, work on Post-Si bug recreation.

 

 

SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS

• B.E/B.Tech/M.E/M.Tech in Computer Science/Electrical/Electronic Engineering

• 3+  years’ of experience in CPU verification.

• Good understanding about basics of computer architecture & digital systems.

• Good understanding of Verilog, System Verilog. Some knowledge of shell/perl scripting is a plus.

• Should be a good team player, quick thinker, pro-active, adaptable & outspoken/approachable.

• Must communicate well both written and orally

• Must be well-organized and should be able to multitask well with due diligence on closing his/her tasks.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

You will gain valuable experience in different aspects of CPU design & verification. You will also be familiarized with the nuances & challenges associated in design/verification of high-performance, pipelined CPU architecture. This helps you gain valuable insight & enhance your understanding of CPU micro-architecture. This team is essential to the success of AMD as a growing company. It is a very exciting environment and you will be working with the very best in our technology.  You will be working on some of the most exciting projects the industry has to offer.
