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 Memory IO team is looking for a passionate and experienced IP and subsystem BIOS firmware engineers for pre-silicon and production BIOS firmware development of high-speed LPDDRx and DDRx IPs and subsystems.  Be a part of the definition, design, and development phase of industry-leading Memory PHYs and interface IP, as well as the overall memory subsystem.  This opportunity includes close coordination and alignment with the verification of the memory subsystem across multiple product lines as well as pre-silicon and post silicon bring up and production level firmware verification. 

 

THE PERSON:

Are you looking to take on and tackle advanced engineering challenges? We are looking for open minded, flexible, innovative, and creative Engineers looking to join a new team to develop BIOS firmware production code for server and client products at AMD.   Are you looking for a ground floor opportunity that requires being a self-starter and the ability to independently drive tasks to completion? We are also looking for strong interpersonal and communication skills – this position will be working collaboratively across the AMD organization! If this sounds like you, please apply!  

Come be a part of a cutting-edge team that delivers Industry leading IP and help our experts in RTL, Firmware, BIOS and architecture teams develop leading edge Memory interfaces.  

 

REQUIRED SKILLS:

  • Excellent knowledge of C, C++, and scripting languages
  • BIOS level IP and subsystem SoC firmware development experience including configuration boot and configuration runtime firmware development.
  • Ability to adapt learn new toolsets and framework.
  • Pre-silicon and post-silicon experience developing and debugging BIOS firmware, both on simulation/emulation/FPGA platforms and real hardware.
  • Firmware development, testing, and integration into overall BIOS

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE DESIRED:

  • Experience with DDR/JEDEC standard IP, DDR PHY, or Memory Controller firmware development.
  • Strong knowledge of git and perforce.
  • Strong understanding of SoC organization/architecture.
  • Utilization of architectural models to verify firmware pre-silicon.
  • Laboratory experience, including the use of equipment: oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, etc. to debug and triage firmware and lab bring up issues.

ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCED DESIRED:

  • Knowledge of SystemC, UVM and Python.
  • VCS simulation and debug experience.
  • Strong understanding of synchronization techniques (handshakes, message passing).
  • Knowledge of hardware level clocking and synchronization.
  • Zebu Emulation debug experience.
  • SoC IP knowledge and architectural understanding of the purpose of each IP.
  • Experience with low level, physical phenomena-oriented logic design (dealing with IO, clocking, voltage control, etc.).

EDUCATION:

  • Bachelor's degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering and relevant experience, or
  • Master's or PhD degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering with relevant experience.
