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_




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 micro-architecture employing knowledge of modern software developement and verification theory. 

 

THE PERSON:

You have a passion for modern, complex processor architecture, digital design, software development and verification in general. You are a team player who has excellent communication skills. You have strong analytical and problem-solving skills and are willing to learn and ready to take on problems. 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Develop and execute on verification test plans for micro processor units.
  • Participate in technical reviews of the specifications, design and test plans. Identify and address areas of concern to meet design quality objectives.
  • Develop testbench components such as checkers and stimulus using C++
  • Develop and analyze system verilog assertions and coverage terms. 

  • Debug and root cause failures at different levels of design hierarchy

Additional responsibilities may include:

  • 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.
  • Independently develop quality, timely and cost-effective solutions

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

We are looking for CPU unit level design verification experience with a background in Computer Architecture and excellent coding skills. Other skills include:

  • Processor pipeline and memory hierarchy verification or architecture
  • Hands-on work in C++ programming for either hardware modeling or testbench development or projects of similar scope and complexity.
  • Experience with industry standard verification testbench and IP methodology such as UVM or similar.
  • 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).
  • Hardware/logic simulators (e.g. VCS or NC-Verilog).
  • Debug tools or waveform viewers.
  • System Verilog language.
  • Object oriented programming (e.g. C++ or System Verilog)
  • RTL emulation platform simulation model.
