AMD together we advance_




THE ROLE

Test Engineering is a cost, quality, and time-to-market driven team responsible for enabling the availability of microprocessors to our customers. Pre-silicon responsibilities for the Test Engineer include understanding product features, developing characterization test plans, highlighting test coverage holes, and developing software and hardware infrastructure to execute those plans. This requires interaction with Design and Platform Engineering and allows for the opportunity to provide test enhancement feedback for future designs.   Post-silicon responsibilities include microprocessor debug & analysis and the execution of characterization plans. This may include silicon performance issues, yield issues, manufacturing processes, and device marginalities. The Test Engineer will work closely with Design and Platform Engineering to root cause issues that result from the debug, characterization and margin analysis. The Test Engineer will also provide datasheet specifications and drive improvements in yield.

 

THE PERSON

Position includes test planning, test creation, characterization, data analysis, and silicon debug of microprocessors in leading edge process technologies.

Includes:

  • Development and debug of test patterns and test flows
  • Ensuring device testability and manufacturability from development through production
  • Optimization of test flows for increased quality and cost improvement
  • Analysis of part failures leading to test flow improvement
  • Characterization and debug of new silicon designs and process technologies
  • Analysis of characterization data

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Scan/ATPG
    • Applicant should be familiar with scan hardware compressions, failure mechanisms and debug processes
    • AC scan (at-speed) development, debug, test and characterization
  • Array
    • Applicant should be familiar with modern SRAM cell operation.
    • SRAM debug, characterization, test or design knowledge
    • Memory BIST engine knowledge
  • Analog/Mixed Signal
    • Applicant should be familiar with modern microprocessor architecture and analog DFT

PREFERRED EXPERIENCE:

  • Strong communication skills including data presentation
  • Java, Perl, C++ coding skills
  • ATE test experience
  • Unix proficiency
  • Modern computer architecture knowledge
  • ATE test program knowledge
  • JTAG knowledge

ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS

  • BS/MS EE or equivalent
