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_




THE ROLE:

The candidate will join a highly visible and influential team of physical interface (PHY) and mixed signal IP experts tasked with integration and support of 3rd Party SERDES and mixed signal IP across all AMD products.  The team works across a large swath of AMD integration and post-silicon teams as well as with IP vendors and AMD customers.

 

THE PERSON:

The ideal candidate is self-motivated to work independently as well as collaboratively with technical people across a variety of AMD and vendor/partner teams, and thinks of herself/himself as a problem solver. 

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Serve as the AMD technical owner of various 3rd party SERDES and other mixed signal IP. Provide pre- and post-silicon IP leadership and support for SerDes PHYs and other mixed signal IP, in particular IP like PCIe, Ethernet, UCIe, USB, MIPI, and Display PHYs, plus PLLs and miscellaneous IOs and circuits.
  • Work directly with 3rd party IP vendors to support design transfer, release of design views and collaterals, and integration of IP across many AMD products. Work with AMD integration teams on integration and checks for electrical, logical, and physical quality.
  • Support IC package and PCB design teams in completing and evaluating their signal and power integrity analyses.
  • Perform technical evaluation of new IP for licensing.
  • Provide post-silicon support from bring-up of first silicon, to debug, ATE production test, lab validation and characterization, compliance testing, and customer support.
  • Provide expertise in translating post-silicon learnings into suggestions for the new IP design process for SerDes IP.

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • 10-15 years of professional experience in the semiconductor industry doing analog mixed-signal circuit/system design, analysis, validation and/or test, characterization and debug.
  • Design knowledge of high-speed I/O SerDes architectures and blocks, plus general mixed-signal IP, e.g. CTLE, FFE, DFE, VGA, CDR, PLL/DLL, TX driver, EMC, GPIO, etc.
  • Experience with one or more interface protocols like PCIe, Ethernet, USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, MIPI etc. preferred.
  • Experience with advanced FinFET semiconductor technologies at and below 7nm.
  • Basic understanding of RTL, logic design, and digital circuits
  • Python and/or Perl programming desirable.  Should be familiar with UNIX environment.
  • Laboratory experience, including hands-on use of equipment: BERT, oscilloscope, logic analyzer, etc. desirable.
  • Strong analytical/problem solving skills, ability to learn quickly, and attention to detail.
  • Good teamwork and oral and written communications skills are critical.

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

  • B.S. or M.S. Electrical Engineering preferred
