Silicon Design Engineering – Central DFX

The Role:

Central DFX (CDFX) is a centralized ASIC design group within AMD’s Technology and Engineering organization. The group consists of design teams located in several AMD locations in North America and Asia. It is primarily responsible for architecture, design, and implementation of critical Design-for-Test (DFT) and Design-for-Debug (DFD) features for cutting edge AMD products. It is also responsible for DFX design methodology and CAD automation tools development to support the global DFX engineering teams across AMD.

The Person:

As a DFT Silicon Design Engineer, you will be working with a complementary team of design engineers and managers from various global design locations on design-for-test (DFT) design and implementation, tool and methodology development, project execution and continuous improvement initiatives. This role provides an excellent growth opportunity for robust individuals looking to make a difference. This is an exciting time to join the AMD team!

The following highlights a successful candidate:

  • Proven DFT design skills and project execution experience
  • Self-starter, driven and focused with a dedication to meeting deadlines
  • Has an aptitude to thrive in a fast-paced multi-tasking environment
  • Used to working independently, and yet can work collaboratively with different levels and organization functions.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication and interpersonal skills

Key Responsibilities:

  • Collaborating with a multi-discipline and international team of engineers on design-for-test (DFT) architecture, design, tools, and methodology initiatives
  • Providing DFT feature bring-up and pattern debug support to production engineering team during first silicon bring-up, qualification and failure analysis
  • Performing scan insertion, ATPG verification and test pattern generation
  • Developing CAD software, scripts, and other support technology to enable successful construction of DFT logics in sophisticated SoC design
  • Performing DFT RTL design per micro-architectural specifications using design generation flows
  • Performing DFT RTL integration, synthesis, equivalency checking, timing analysis and closure including defining design constraints
  • Writing and maintain DFT documentation and specifications

 

Preferred Experience:

  • Minimum 8 years of ASIC design experience
  • Proven technical leadership and works well with multi-functional teams
  • Expertise in scan compression architecture, scan insertion and ATPG methodologies are essential
  • Strong understanding of various technologies that must work with DFT/DFD technology such as CPU’s, graphics engines, high-speed digital design, memory, and I/O controllers, … etc
  • Proven understanding and experience in Verilog simulator and waveform debugging tools, proficiency in debugging both RTL and gate level simulations
  • Experience in solving logic design or timing issues with integration, synthesis, and PD teams
  • Good solid understanding of UNIX/Linux and scripting languages (e.g., TCL, c-shell, Perl), C++ programming
  • Knowledge in EDA tools/methodology, such as synthesis, equivalency checking, static timing analysis
  • Knowledge of ATE and digital IC manufacturing test is a plus
  • Knowledge in using emulator for ATPG pattern verification is a plus
  • Strong experience in sophisticated ASIC design (multi-million gates) in DFT/DFD techniques such as JTAG/IEEE standards, scan and ATPG, on-chip test pattern compression and at-speed testing using PLL, memory BIST and repair, logic BIST, power-gating, on-chip debug logic, testing of high speed SerDes IO and analog design
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

Academic Credentials:

  • B.Sc in Electrical or Computer Engineering (or equivalent)
