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: 

As a member of the Radeon Technologies Group, you will help bring to life cutting-edge designs. As a member of the Power Management Architectures team, you will drive definition, prototyping , tradeoff studies, implementation and verification of the power management architecture along with the algorithms and features which make use of this architecture to optimize power consumption for the next generation of Radeon gaming & compute GPU's..

THE PERSON:

This is an experienced engineer who brings a deep understanding of SoC and Platform architecture, Power Management concepts and algorithms, and a passion to drive perf/watt and perf/$ optimizations for world class GPUs. Previous experience in the areas of voltage margin optimization, reliability and yield management, statistical analysis of silicon manufacturing/test data will be a bonus.


KEY RESPONSIBLITIES:

  • Drive Power Management advances and multi-generational roadmap in the area of voltage optimization, with an eye on silicon reliability and yield, to maximize power and cost constrained performance for Radeon graphics platforms
  • Take ownership for developing and driving PM features from concept through product launch for a family of SoC devices with varying configurations and target market segments
  • Work cross functionally with Software, Firmware, SOC, IP, Platform, Technology, Product teams through every stage of product development, evangelize for power efficiency, lead broad forums and drive product definition alignment
  • Work with product teams to understand the Perf/Power/Cost requirements
  • Drive power management feature definition per SoC program
  • Develop system level models, analyze return-on-investment and evaluate trade-offs
  • Document specifications
  • Guide power management feature implementation, verification, emulation and post-silicon validation in an engineering resource efficient and scalable manner
  • Coach and mentor other engineers as a technical leader


P
REFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Proven experience with GPU or CPU power architecture, PPA tradeoffs, power management algorithms, embedded microcontroller firmware, hardware test and verification environments
  • Solid background in electrical circuits, VLSI and circuit design fundamentals
  • Familiarity with ASIC/SoC Design cycles and methodologies including RTL, Verification, Emulation, Physical Design and post-si validation
  • Background in prototyping and proof of concept of new complex architectures and algorithms in hardware/software/firmware using physical and/or emulation platforms will be a plus
  • Programming skills in C/C++, scripting with Perl or Python
  • Previous experience in the areas of voltage margin optimization, reliability and yield management, statistical analysis of silicon manufacturing/test data will be a major differentiator
  • Ability to work cross functionally with HW/SW and Pre/Post Silicon teams, lead by influence and strong communication skills

 

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or another relevant field with 8+ years of applicable experience preferred
  • Masters or PhD with 5+ years of applicable experience preferred
