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.


The AMD product characterization team in Singapore is looking for a highly motivated and driven individual to help evaluate the performance of our ACAP products. As a member of the product characterization team, you will develop and execute system-level characterization tests to guarantee design margins and ensure the performance of the ARM-based processor system and related subsystems within our ACAP products. Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Designing and developing characterization tests in hardware and software, for measuring the performance and design margins of the processor system and related IP with respect to parameters such as timing, frequency and voltage
  • Developing innovative system-level tests to evaluate SoC performance at the application level
  • Implementing software and automation for pre-silicon and post-silicon experimental lab setups
  • Collecting and analyzing characterization data across a range of device operating conditions and volume to generate characterization reports and insights based on silicon trends
  • Working with cross-functional teams to correlate data and to debug and resolve issues


The successful candidate should possess the following attributes:

  • 5+ years of experience in pre/post-silicon validation
  • BS in EE, CS, ECE or related field; MS preferred
  • Knowledge of processor systems, caches, SoC architecture and on-chip interconnects
  • Understanding of developing for multi-core processor systems is highly advantageous
  • Proficiency in C and (ARM) Assembly, with embedded Linux and RTOS being an added bonus
  • Logic design skills in VDHL/Verilog, with an understanding of EDA tools and FPGA internals
  • Knowledge of scripting languages such as Python, Tcl or Perl
  • Solid understanding of statistical analysis
