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.

Silicon Design Engineer


The Role:

Provide technical expertise for execution on the functional verification strategy for next generation microprocessor designs. Maintain and enhance existing functional verification methodology. Improve existing infrastructure. Work on related projects and/or assignments as needed, to meet team goals. Perform project definition, training, and documentation. Develop quality, timely and cost-effective solutions independently. Collaborate with architects and TG/PG RTL/Designers. Develop an effective working relationship with parties involved.


The Person:

The person who would be successful in the role should possess good communication skills and be a teammate.


Key Responsibilities:

  • Perform functional feature verification of high-speed Microprocessor designs, including development of infrastructure, directed and random test suites at behavioral RTL level across SoC, Core and block hierarchies.
  • Develop environments, infrastructure, and test plans to accommodate both full chip and stand-alone block level verification and debug capabilities using simulation tools, debug tools and programming skills, based on in-depth understanding of the architecture and HDL/logical design of the microprocessor.
  • Develop an automated regression infrastructure setup for functional verification of high-speed microprocessor designs. Based on detailed understanding of the design architecture, develop, run and debug x86 assembly based directed tests and random exercisers to validate functionality and testability operation of the microprocessor design using C/C++/Perl/assembly programming, logic design and simulation skill set.
  • Resolve all simulation discrepancies and assertion responses for both behavioral and gate level logic models. Measure and analyze coverage result and take vital actions to fill in coverage holes.


Preferred Experience:

  • Strong understanding or technical expertise in functional verification of microprocessor designs.
  • Experience with Verilog/SystemVerilog HDL, programming in Perl, C/C++, logic simulation is a requirement. Direct experience with Verilog simulators is a plus.
  • Strong understanding of computer architecture and assembly programming.  


Academic Credentials:

  • MS or Ph.D. with some industry co-op/internship experience desired (all degrees are related to CS or EE).
