What you do at AMD changes everything 

At AMD, we push the boundaries of what is possible.  We believe in changing the world for the better by driving innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies – building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data center. 

Developing great technology takes more than talent: it takes amazing people who understand collaboration, respect, and who will go the “extra mile” to achieve unthinkable results.  It takes people who have the passion and desire to disrupt the status quo, push boundaries, deliver innovation, and change the world.   If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

Logical and physical optimization of custom digital circuits in a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) block.  Simulations to characterize performance and power at cell, critical path, and block-level designs.  Review and implement physical design constraints in automated place and route design flows.  Run circuit-level checks for electrical characterization.  Support for timing and power modeling based on hardware design.  Support for post-silicon validation through functional simulation and pre-silicon benchmarking for performance and power.

Day-to-day tasks include:

  • Schematic capture
  • Logical equivalency checks
  • Test bench development
  • Place and route constraint definition
  • Physical design closure in APR tools
  • Critical-path simulations for timing correlation with STA
  • Electrical rule checks comenserate with each stage of the design


  • BS with 2+ years of exp or MS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering or related equivalent
  • Knowledge in VLSI design, design automation, IC design
  • Knowledge of floor planning, synthesis, place & route, static timing analysis, and EM/IR analysis
