AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE: 

We are seeking a seasoned SoC Architect with expertise or significant interest in IP solutions and System Architecture. You have had significant success driving architecture, product roadmaps and product requirements. You are meticulous about Power, Performance and Area while driving schedule and managing cost. This senior role will stretch you as you lead architecture teams in new directions, network with our world-class, patent-holding think-tank, and negotiate amongst design teams, marketing, and business unit executives. As a member of the PCIe/CXL based solution design team , you will help bring to life cutting-edge designs, you will work closely with the architecture, Physical Design, and Design verification teams, and product engineers to achieve first pass silicon success.

 

THE PERSON: 

You have excellent communication and presentation skills, demonstrated through technical publications, presentations, trainings, executive briefings, etc.  You are highly adept at collaboration among top-thinkers and engineers alike, ready to mentor and guide, and help to elevate the knowledge and skills of the team around you. 

 

You have a passion for modern, complex microarchitecture, and digital design. You are a team player who has excellent communication skills and experience collaborating with other engineers located in different sites/timezones. You have strong analytical and problem-solving skills and are willing to learn and ready to take on problems. 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

You will work on next generation PCIe / CXL and connectivity solutions to enable a vast variety of applications. Some of the key responsibilities would be

  • Scoping, planning, and driving the front end design of complex IPs
  • Resource management and planning for concurrent projects
  • Microarchitecture development of IP subsystems
  • Manage and provide technical leadership and guidance to a small design team
  • As needed, owning, coding, debugging aspects of the IP
  • Work closely with verification (Debug, coverage, testplan), architecture (features), validation, physical design, security, dfx, power, and program management to deliver IPs on-time with high quality.
  • Post-silicon and SoftIP support

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE: 

  • Knowledge of ASIC development flows
  • Knowledge of SoftIP development flows
  • High performance, multi-queue DMA uarchitecture and architecture experience
  • IP integration
  • Knowledge of system verilog

  • Knowledge of NoC subsytems
    • Address translation
    • Aperture protection
  • Interleaving
  • Knowledge of front-end RTL design tools and methodologies.
  • Knowledge of front-end requirements and deliverables for verification, validation, physical design, architecture, security, dfx, power.
    • Verification - coverage, testplan, debug
    • Physical design – timing, clock crossings, reset crossings, ECOs (manual, formal)
  • Ability to work and effectively collaborate with partners
  • Experience with rtl simulation tools, rtl linting tools, reset domain crossings, clock domain crossings, synthesis, RAM generation (area, timing, power, SEU tradeoffs),
  • Experience with PCIe (AXI bridging, performance, ordering, MSIX, Virtual functions, error handling), CXL, Ethernet, DDR3/4/5, LPDDR3/4, HBM
  • Knowledge of scripting languages like Perl, tcl or cshell
  • Leadership/Management of small team of IP/SOC design engineers
  • Strong communication, collaboration, and presentation skills

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS: 

  • Bachelors or Masters degree in computer engineering/Electrical Engineering
