AMD together we advance_




The Role:  

With AMD's Client engineering teams, you will be exposed to the world’s best Desktop/PC and Mobile CPU, GPU and APU processors for accelerated system computing power. As an AMD Client Engineer you will have visibility to cutting edge multi-layered security features, H-Series processors optimized for gamers and creators, and U-Series processors optimized for thin and light notebooks. In addition, you will learn how AMD achieves unprecedented performance and battery life “Zen” core architecture. Come join our world class client engineering team providing rapid career growth advancement, and access to cutting edge client technologies, through its year over year record-breaking market share, product performance and revenue gains!  

Come join the team responsible for driving AMD’s Shift-Left strategies for Client APUs, planning and execution of our Client Compute Products, which are used by major OEM and compute solution customers in the world. In this role, you get to interact with multiple stakeholders (firmware/BIOS, SW, IP, DV, system architects) to plan, create, execute, and debug system use cases on emulation/FPGA platforms, in addition to advancing pre-silicon infrastructure to expand validation capabilities.

The Person:

AMD is seeking an emulation system Lead Engineer who thrives in an environment that requires creative debugging skills, drive to improve pre-silicon system validation coverage capabilities, and a passion for leading a team and improving our overall Shift-Left strategies and goals.  

Key Responsibilities: 

  • Lead Engineer responsible for a small team of emulation engineers  
  • Mentor and help with test and design debug, gather and update status and escalate issues to swim lane leads
  • Responsible in tracking and updating master test plan and to detail issues in JIRA
  • Work with Firmware, SOC Design and other Emulation engineers to debug and drive tests to completion
  • Design and development of test environment components to support the pre-silicon validation of embedded firmware, BIOS code features, SW and directed tests
  • Writing directed tests to verify features in a co-simulated and emulated/FPGA hardware environment, also writing monitors and checkers to support end-to-end firmware hardware validation
  • Responsible for writing and developing coverage goals and test plans
  • Responsible for running emulator workloads to test new features

Preferred Experience:  

  • Prior hands-on experience with FPGA and/or emulation platforms (Veloce, Palladium, ZEBU, HAPs, Protium)
  • Developing System Verilog based test content as well as developing C++, Python, Perl, Shell and TCL test content
  • Validating hardware features for at least 3 or more projects in a pre-silicon environment
  • Debugging failures using waveform viewers, log files and microcode trace dumps
  • Experience debugging software using debuggers and trace files
  • Knowledge of low power design emulation/verification and power management fundamentals
  • Knowledge of UEFI, Core boot, Chrome, Windows Operating Systems
  • Knowledge of x86 and/or ARM SoC Architecture
  • Knowledge of Platform security, Secure protocols, Cryptographic applications, Secure boot, Attestation/Authentication, Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs)
  • Knowledge of one or more protocols; SPI, DDR, SATA, USB, AXI, PCI, PCIe, MIPI, WLAN or I2C
