AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE: 

The Silicon Validation, Infrastructure, and Platform group plays a key role in the development of test systems and hardware for test & characterization of our advanced device families. Our most recent project has been for the ground-breaking Versal Adaptable Computing Acceleration Platform (ACAP), with quad core ARM processing system and programmable logic. 

 

THE PERSON: 

The ideal candidate possesses a problem-solving mindset with a drive to learn about both hardware and software technologies. A successful candidate will employ these skills to develop driver-level C code, debug failures across software, hardware, and solutions, and drive these issues to resolution by working with other teams. 

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: 

We are looking for a Systems Design Engineer to join the System-level Test team in San Jose.  You will be involved in the silicon life cycle from testing of emulated next-generation RTL through to silicon validation.  You will have a view of the full system but also will become an expert in certain IP down to the register-level.  We are looking for someone who can span the range of able to develop device drivers in software to debug on hardware. 

 

Essential Duties & Responsibilities: 

  • Enhance existing test software for system-level validation and verification of existing and new FPGA features. 
  • Work with multiple teams to drive system-level bugs to resolution.  
  • Design, develop, implement, test, and verify systems based on AMD/Xilinx FPGAs with embedded MicroBlaze or ARM processors. 
  • Provide feedback on architecture, use cases, IP design, tools, and documentation. 
  • Determine design approaches and parameters to build complete systems for emulation, verification, validation and benchmarking of new silicon features at a system level.  
  • Help to develop novel methods for system-level modeling and verification. 

 

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE: 

  • Demonstrated expertise in C programming  
  • Excellent debugging skills 
  • Experience with firmware or device driver programming 
  • Experience understanding system use cases, determining requirements, and writing test specifications 
  • Experience working in a Linux environment, Python, and TCL scripting 
  • Experience with embedded systems and ARM or MicroBlaze architecture and assembly language 
  • A solid understanding of Verification / Validation Methodologies 
  • Emulation platform and Verilog experience is a plus
