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.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the innovative and multi-award winning team that has developed the RF data converter sub-system, including direct-RF digital signal processing, around which Xilinx Zync® Ultrascale+™ RFSoC is built. As part of the Analog and Digital-RF design group you will be working on leading-edge digital communications developments in an advanced mixed-signal environment using the latest 7nm and 16nm FinFET CMOS processes.


The role requires an experienced digital design engineer to work on all aspects of the front-end digital design flow including architecture specification and RTL design and optimisation, as well as some verification and synthesis.  This will involve extensive interactions with the analog design team, digital verification team, synthesis and place-and-route team.  The successful candidate will also be expected to perform a technical leadership role within the team and to promote best design practice within the team. 



Job Requirements:

  • Expert front-end design experience in a modern IC / ASIC design environment
  • Experience in leading digital IC design teams
  • Extensive experience of tools and design flows including RTL design and verification, CDC checking, linting, power estimation and design for low power
  • Expert knowledge of SystemVerilog and logic design concepts
  • Knowledge of DSP fundamentals
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Ability to work well as part of a collaborative multi-site interdisciplinary team
  • Awareness of physical design flows including synthesis, STA, P&R
  • Good awareness of physical implementation constraints on design and design optimization


The following skills would be advantageous:

  • Experience in high speed wireless communications
  • Experience in implementing DSP in ASIC hardware
  • Experience of Matlab / Octave algorithm development and architecture modelling
  • Experience of power management techniques / UPF
  • Experience of designing on the analog/digital boundary
  • Experience of DFX considerations and implementation
  • Knowledge of modern digital verification techniques such as UVM



  • Minimum education level / experience: BS + 8 years, MS + 7 years, PhD + 5 years
