What you do at AMD changes everything

At AMD, we push the boundaries of what is possible. We believe in changing the world for the better by driving innovation in high-performance computing, graphics, and visualization technologies building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms, and the data center.

Developing great technology takes more than talent: it takes amazing people who understand collaboration, respect, and who will go the "extra mile" to achieve unthinkable results. It takes people who have the passion and desire to disrupt the status quo, push boundaries, deliver innovation, and change the world. If you have this type of passion, we invite you to take a look at the opportunities available to come join our team.

The candidate will be a member of the SerDes design team responsible for defining, specifying, and implementing future SerDes IP.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Define microarchitecture and design/implement various state-of-the-art, high-speed (32-64Gbps) analog/mixed-signal blocks for SerDes PHYs

  • Deliver detailed specifications & documentation

  • Develop initial circuit schematics and work closely with layout designers to drive designs to completion (including physical verification and backend/reliability flows)

  • Drive design and layout reviews to ensure quality of deliverables and mitigate overall risk

  • Work closely with various disciplines (e.g. Layout, Logical Design, Physical Design, Firmware, and Design Verification) to ensure successful cross-team engagement and high-quality execution

The successful candidate will possess:

  • A self-starting mentality and able to work with a limited amount of supervision

  • Solid knowledge in high-speed SerDes design (signaling/equalization techniques, analog/mixed-signal circuit design, and signal integrity)

  • Experience with advanced, deep submicron semiconductor technologies (experience with FinFET technology a plus)

  • Solid knowledge of industry-standard tools and practices for analog/mixed-signal and high-speed digital designs (e.g., HSPICE simulator, Cadence design environment)

  • Ability to analyze design issues at an abstract level (e.g., via mathematical and/or behavioral modeling)

  • Analytical thinking and inventive spirit in combination with a solid understanding of risks and risk mitigation

  • Strong/effective communication skills

  • Enthusiastic team-first mentality

  • Familiarity with Perl, Python, and/or MATLAB

  • Ability to read and/or create Verilog models

  • Experience with Unix/Linux environments
