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.

  • Logic RTL Design Engineer – Member of Technical Staff

    The Role:

    AMD’s Low Power Advanced Development team is seeking talented, self-motivated individuals to help develop low power innovations that enable industry-leading power efficient computing and graphics products.  We have openings for R&D engineers to serve as key contributors in small project teams working on low power advanced development projects. 

    The Person:

    A candidate who is seeking challenging projects in low power design using the latest modern semiconductor technologies, who is eager to learn and is a good team player

    Key Responsibilities:

  • Logic RTL design for custom mixed-signal circuits in advanced CMOS technologies.
  • Design logic blocks in Verilog for optimal performance/area/power.
  • Closely work with Physical Design teams and IP and SoC level to optimize implementation, enable SoC integration, close timing, and solve any issues that arise through the design cycle.
  • Create individually or in collaboration with other team members design reviews, technical reports, and other documentation required for meeting the design quality and for the tapeout signoff.
  • Working with design leads to understand features to be implemented and verified.
  • Initial verification and debugging test failures.
  • Design documentation and verification plan creation.
  • Specifying coverage points, reviewing functional and code coverage results and assisting to increase coverage.
  • Provide support in simulation, emulation, and silicon environments.
  • Preferred Experience:

  • Must have experience in RTL level ASIC design, including use of a source control system and RTL linting tools, as well as be able to debug RTL code using simulation tools.
  • Must be expert in Verilog and proficient in System Verilog, VerilogA, C/C++, Perl, TCL, Unix shell scripting, and working in Linux and Windows environments.
  • VCS/Verdi experience is a plus..
  • Must be able to understand, create and debug STA constraints.
  • Strong understanding of synthesis, P&R and clock domain crossing design methodologies.
  • Experience with clock generators such as PLL and FLL.
  • Strong analytical thinking and problem solving skills, excellent attention to detail, and good coding skills and style required.
  • Understanding of basic analog blocks (Linear and Switching voltage regulators, DAC, ADC, comparators, oscillators, high speed circuits), as well as analog/mixed signal design concepts and CMOS processes are a plus.
  • Familiarity with Cadence's custom IC design environment and spice electrical simulators is a plus.
  • Strong communication skills, teamwork experience and a quick learner in a fast-moving environment.
  • Academic Credentials:

  • MS w/ 5+ year experience or PhD Electrical Engineering and/or Computer Architecture work experience.
  • Location:
