AMD together we advance_

The Role

AMD’s Low Power Advanced Development team is seeking talented, self-motivated individuals to help develop low power innovations that enable industry-leading power efficient computing and graphics products. We have openings for R&D engineers to serve as key contributors in small project teams working on low power advanced development projects.

The Person

A candidate who is seeking challenging projects in low power design using the latest modern semiconductor technologies, who is eager to learn and is a good team player. Strong communication skills and a quick learner in a fast-moving environment.

Key Responsibilities

  • Working on low power circuit design for CPU and/or GPU applications, custom mixed-signal circuits and logic design in advanced CMOS technologies using custom and semi-custom physical design flows
  • Design, simulate, and verify analog, high-speed digital, and mixed signal circuits
  • Design for optimum power/speed/area efficiency
  • Closely work with and supervise layout/mask designers by providing annotated schematics, floor plans, layout, reliability, and manufacturability design guidelines
  • Experience in back-end design verification tools and flows including debugging LVS and DRC issues in collaboration with the layout team
  • Work in collaboration with Physical Design Engineers in chip level planning and integrations
  • Create or in collaboration with other team members design reviews, technical reports, and other documentation required for meeting the design quality and for the tape out signoff

Preferred Experience

  • Requires strong understanding of analog/mixed signal design concepts and CMOS processes
  • Experience in Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) design, Frequency-Locked Loop (FLL) design, Oscillators, High Speed Clock circuits, Linear and Switching voltage regulators, DAC, voltage comparators
  • Knowledge in ADC design is a plus
  • Cadences' custom IC design environment with special emphasis on Virtuoso schematic/layout design entry tools
  • Synopsys Custom Designer schematic/layout design entry tool experience is a plus
  • Analog/mixed signal circuit simulators, specifically Hspice, Spectre, SpectreRF
  • Design automation (scripting, python, Perl, csh)
  • Verilog-A modelling
  • Knowledge in the digital design flows including Verilog HDL is a plus
  • Computer Architecture work experience is a plus

Academic Credentials

  • PhD or MS in Electrical Engineering
