WHAT YOU DO AT AMD CHANGES EVERYTHING

We care deeply about transforming lives with AMD technology to enrich our industry, our communities, and the world. Our mission is to build great products that accelerate next-generation computing experiences – the building blocks for the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming and embedded. Underpinning our mission is the AMD culture. We push the limits of innovation to solve the world’s most important challenges. We strive for execution excellence while being direct, humble, collaborative, and inclusive of diverse perspectives. 

AMD together we advance_




Engineer, Power Systems Design – Datacenter GPU

 

THE ROLE: 

In the Advanced System and Power team, we design high-technology platforms for world-class products based on AMD’s Graphics Processing Units (GPU’s). Our team plays a major part in architecting and shaping every graphics board offered by AMD.

We design cutting-edge power converters for our discrete graphics boards that retail around the world. Facing always more stringent demands in terms of the current level, efficiency, and responsiveness, these designs are essential to maximize the performance from our GPU’s in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

The successful candidate would be responsible for supporting the architecture, design, analysis, and verification of power systems intended for powering high performance CPUs/GPUs/APUs.  The engineer will work with cross-functional teams to design and implement a full power delivery network, model and validate PDN impedance and droop targets, and verify power supply integrity using lab and in-situ silicon measurements.  The candidate is expected to work and guide the system’s design team to provide optimum component selection and detailed layout guidelines during the design execution phase.  In addition, the candidate is expected to work with the Board Validation team to develop test plans/procedures to perform system-level validation for characterizing design margins on the power domains.  Other responsibilities include:

  • Work with SoC and System Architects and external industry to drive the latest power delivery technologies and innovations for computers and electronics industry.
  • Analyze and compare solutions, and then drive team insights and architecture forward into system implementation, SoC silicon, and power delivery silicon.
  • Conduct feasibility studies and work with development teams to deliver solutions.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Technical understanding of power supply architectures and PDN in server, OAM, and PCIe environments.
  • Understanding of needed design and validation processes to design power circuits for high quality/reliability requirements.
  • Understanding and experience with multi-phase buck/buck-boost regulators, digital PWM controllers, bus converters, LDOs, PMICs, charge pumps, ADCs & DACs, etc
  • Working knowledge of 2D/2.5D EM simulation tools such as Sigrity’s PowerDC, PowerSI, SiWave or equivalent
  • Strong knowledge of high frequency magnetics design for power electronics 
  • Printed circuit board design experience is a must.
  • Experience in schematic capture, PCB design tools such as OrCAD or Allegro
  • Ability to work with multiple cross functional teams to make the right trade-offs on system level performance.
  • Fundamental knowledge of control theory, closed loop compensation, stability analysis, phase margin, etc.
  • Proficiency with lab equipment such as oscilloscope, eload, function generator, etc.
  • Experience with analog circuit modeling and simulation tools (e.g. Simplis, PSpice, HSpice etc.) required.
  • Must have good written and verbal communication skills.
  • Knowledge of AMD’s SVIx power management interface

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS & EXPERIENCE:

  • 5+ years of relevant industry experience
  • B.S. is required, M.S. preferred.
