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.



TITLE : SerDes Modelling Engineer

THE ROLE : The candidate will be a member of the high speed SerDes design team supporting the system simulation and implementation of future SerDes IPs in the 32Gbps+ range, especially in the PAM4 area. The focus of the activity will be centered around the modeling of the critical high-speed analog and digital blocks, definition of algorithms for calibration, adaptation, equalization, and development of abstracted models for link performance simulations.

THE PERSON : The ideal candidate will have :

  • Analytical thinking and inventive spirit in combination with a solid understanding of risks and risk mitigation
  • Strong/effective communication skills
  • Hard working team-first mentality


  • Contribute to the modeling of various state-of-the-art, high-speed (32-64Gbps) analog/mixed-signal blocks for SerDes PHYs, specifically in the PAM4 area
  • Develop models for link-level performance (BER, eye-opening) simulation of the PHY and application of the same to the development and optimization of performance.
  • Documentation of algorithms and guidance of Analog, Digital, Firmware and Verification teams on the implementation/verification of the same
  • Work closely in various domains, especially Analog Mixed Signal design, Digital Design and Firmware, as well as Design Verification to ensure efficient implementation of the overall PHY architecture and algorithms and full coverage of the features
  • Participate to the definition of development flows that improve efficiency and quality of execution


  • A confirmed successful track record in micro-architecture, design, or modeling for SERDES
  • Proven and hands-on knowledge of algorithms and adaptation/calibration/ clock and data recovery techniques for high-speed SERDES, especially in the area of PAM4
  • Solid knowledge of industry-standard tools and best-in-class practices for PHY modeling, both in terms of abstracted models (e.g. Matlab/Simulink/Python) as well as Verilog-based.
  • Good knowledge in high-speed SerDes design (signaling/equalization techniques, analog/mixed-signal circuit design, and signal integrity).
  • Ability to dig into circuits and RTL or FW code to understand the detailed implementation



  • BS or MSc Electrical or Computer Engineering; BSc Computer Science
