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.

Senior DFT RTL Design Engineer

Do you want to be at the forefront of designing the next Ryzen, Threadripper or Epyc CPU? AMD is seeking an experienced and creative processor designer to design and develop custom DFT (design for test) microarchitecture for our next-generation processor. Our candidate is experienced in the microprocessor development process and has a consistent track record of delivering timely, high-quality products. Experience in DFT architecture and design is extremely vital.

Key responsibilities:

  • Participate in the definition of Design-For-Test Microarchitecture for our next-generation high-performance CPU cores.
  • Contribute to Design for Test (DFT) RTL; to meet the highest quality standards of cloud and embedded computing.
  • Collaborate with design verification to validate and ensure production level deployment of features - enabling testability, diagnostics, and quality of silicon.
  • Collaborate with physical design engineers to achieve high frequency and low power; utilizing the latest cutting-edge fabrication technologies.
  • Deliver high-quality products on schedule while working with engineers that act as one team.

Preferred Experience:

  • Experience in DFT (design for test) for high-performance microprocessor designs.
  • Experience must include Verilog RTL development with industry tools in a CPU, GPU, or similarly sophisticated semiconductor product.

  • Logic design or custom circuit design.
  • Exposure to design verification methods.
  • Experience with physical design, synthesis, place and route, static timing analysis, and power closure.
  • Problem-solving and debugging skills.
  • Excellent communication and technical documentation skills.

Other experience that add value:

  • Experience with clocking, reset, power-up sequences, and power management logic.
  • Experience with design for debug (DFD) and design for manufacturability (DFM).
  • Comfort with scripting such as Python, Ruby, Perl, Shell or TCL

Academic credentials and experience:

  • MS EE/CE/CS and relevant work experience
