AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE:

We are seeking a seasoned SoC Architect with expertise or significant interest in System Architecture.  SOC Architect will engage in enhancement, scalability, and power optimizations of the AMD and Industrial Interconnect protocols, including ownership of the AMD Scalable Data Protocol.  The role includes engagement with CXL Consortium and AMD teams involved in the CXL design and enablement to drive CXL enhancements for trusted, power efficient, and reliable execution environment. SOC Architect will interact with AMD Business Unit/Domain design teams to understand customer needs to drive improvements in both AMD Scalable Data Fabric and CXL protocols.  Additionally, SOC Architect will continue enhancing an interconnect of the AMD Infinity Fabric to the AXI, CHI, and other industrial protocols. 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.



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.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Define product features and capabilities, close architecture, and micro-architecture requirements, drive technical specifications for SoC and IP blocks to meet those requirements, and provide technical direction to execution teams
  • Comprehend the SOC as a complete system which includes HW (Silicon), FW, BIOS & SW and ensure that FW, BIOS & SW are aligned to enable all features, optimizing for performance and power
  • Work cross functionally with IP/Domain architects to identify and assess complex technical issues/risks and develop architectural solutions to achieve product requirements
  • Knowledge sharing and other contributions to Platform & System Architecture
  • As an overall product owner, responsible for architecture analysis and technical solutions for marketing/feature change requests
  • Work closely with Design teams for Area and Floorplan refinement, Verification Test plan reviews, Timing targets, Emulation plans, Pre-Si bug resolution and Performance/Power Verification sign offs
  • Support Post-Si teams for Product Performance, Power and functional issues debug/resolution

 PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Outstanding foundation in Systems & SoC architecture, with expertise in one or more of the following: CPU or GPU, Memory sub-system, Fabrics, CPU/GPU coherency, Multimedia, I/O subsystems, Clocks, Resets, Virtualization and Security
  • Experience analyzing CPU, GPU or System-level Micro-Architectural features to identify performance bottlenecks within different workloads
  • Demonstrated expertise in power management microarchitecture, low power design and power optimization, along with power impact at architecture, logic design, and circuit levels
  • Excellent communication, management, and presentation skills.
  • Adept at collaboration among top-thinkers and senior architects with strong interpersonal skills to work across teams in different geographies

 PREFERRED ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in related discipline preferred
