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.
 

CPU Design Verification Engineer

THE ROLE:

In this position, you will perform pre-Silicon Functional Verification of next-generation high-performance Microprocessor designs. It involves research, design, develop, and/or test of electronic components and systems for the semiconductor and related device manufacturing employing knowledge of electronic theory.

 

THIS PERSON:

We're searching for candidates who love technical challenges and are natural problem solvers. Detail-oriented people who seek continuous improvement and enjoy innovation are encouraged to apply.

 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

You will be responsible to develop and execute on verification test plans at different levels of design hierarchy including unit and full-chip environments and develop high level language testbench components including stimulus drivers, BFMs, behavioral models, monitors and checkers. You will also develop, simulate and debug directed and random stimulus and assembly level tests to find bugs in the microprocessor design and verify the functionality and verify conformance to the ISA.

Some additional responsibilities include:

  • Develop and analyze assertions and coverage terms. Participate in technical reviews of the specifications, design and test plans. Identify and address areas of concern to meet design quality objectives.
  • Work with RTL writers to resolve all simulation failures and discrepancies
  • Develop tools, infrastructure, processes and flows to enable functional verification
  • Document test plans and testbench component plans and drive reviews with peers and partners.
  • Maintain and improve existing functional verification infrastructure and methodology.
  • When presented with Silicon issues, replicate in the pre-silicon environment and provide debug expertise to root cause the issue and ensure complete validation
  • Contribute towards and drive as needed pre-silicon and/or post-silicon verification of complex architectural and microarchitectural features
  • Drive project goals and dependencies with cross-site Architects, RTL writers, and Physical Design engineers.

 

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

We are looking for highly experienced CPU level design verification engineer with a strong background in Computer Architecture and excellent coding skills

Other skills include -

 

  • Hands-on work in C++ programming for either hardware modeling or testbench development or projects of similar scope and complexity
  • Logic design and representing the same in HDL (e.g. Verilog or VHDL)
  • Assembly language programming and Instruction Set Architecture of a current microprocessor
  • Hardware Verification methodology and techniques such as simulation, debug, coverage, formal, etc.
  • Experience working in a Unix/Linux environment, scripting languages (e.g. Perl or Python or Ruby), in hardware/logic simulators (e.g. VCS or NC-Verilog), in debug tools or waveform viewers, in Verification languages (e.g. Specman or System Verilog).

 

Academic credentials:

  • MSEE, MSCE or related degree
