Front-End Silicon Design & Integration (FEINT) Engineer

The role:

A Front-End Silicon Design and Integration (FEINT) Engineering role in our System Management Unit (SMU) IP team, where a large number of embedded micro-processor subsystems, hardware accelerators and other IPs vital to improve system performance and functionality are designed and verified. These IPs provide high performance functions to System on Chip (SoC) products across all AMD business units such as client computers, servers, discrete graphics, and gaming. Our FEINT engineers will perform RTL synthesis and PPA analysis in order to improve the QoR of RTL designs. They will also create, adopt and automate RTL design rule checks as well as perform ECO and LEC checks.

The person:

A talented FEINT engineer with strong records of technical ownership and execution to drive synthesis, ECO, PPA analysis assignment to completion. A forward-thinking engineer who tends to optimize/improve the workflow, anticipate/analyze/resolve technical issues, enjoy a competitive pace while empowering and mentoring team members. A strong written and verbal communicator with strong problem solving and attention to detail skills along with professional interpersonal communication capability.

Key responsibilities:

  • Develop RTL synthesis strategy and scripts to perform synthesis and PPA analysis (performance, power, area) on subsystem level and block level RTL designs to drive for continued improvement of QoR (quality of result)
  • Develop ECO strategy and perform netlist and/or conformal assisted RTL ECOs, perform LEC on resulting netlists and resolve discrepancies
  • Develop, adopt and automate RTL design rule checks in collaboration with Back-End Integration and Physical design teams, triage and debug design rule violations with the RTL design team
