AMD together we advance_

Senior High Performance CPU Physical Designer

The Role:

In this role, you will join the high-performance core physical design team with the charter to own a portion of the core in which you will start with Synthesis and deliver a Placed and Routed design that meets all required criteria. You will work directly with external disciplines (CAD/DFT/Architecture); for example, working with the architects to optimize critical timing paths.

The Person:

The successful candidate will independently execute design work and contribute technically with a high general impact on the overall design. We are seeking someone who is innovative and eager to learn. Does this describe you? If so, then join us!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Implement working knowledge of principles of logic and transistor level circuit design, CAD tools and expertise in one of many functional areas (e.g., clocks, standard cell libraries, synthesis, place and route, electrical analysis, etc.).
  • Innovate and improve the design. Point out lower power and higher performance tradeoffs.
  • Preparing schedules and scope several months in advance, such as building the analysis schedule for a given flow step or setting the delivery of a circuit macro across the project.
  • Prepare well thought out recommendations for technical reviews (e.g., design tradeoffs, bringing a list of various options to a technical review, then submitting a strong recommendation).

Preferred Experience:

  • Mastery of logic, circuit design, CMOS transistor design, and CAD tools for high-performance design.

Academic Credentials:

MS degree in Electrical Engineering
