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 ROLE

The Systems and IP team is responsible for the development of AMD’s client and server memory controllers and Infinity Fabric interconnect. The Infinity Fabric is part of every new AMD product being developed across Client, Server, Graphics, and Semi-Custom markets.

The transport layer of the interconnect is composed of the network of switches that move data within a given die paired with the external links that allow the fabric to be extended onto additional dies. We are working to expand the options for connecting the fabric to other AMD products and are looking for a student to join the team as a pre-silicon verification engineer to help verify our growing portfolio of interconnect technologies.

Verification engineers are responsible for developing software models of design components using object-oriented SystemVerilog and the UVM verification library with a goal of finding bugs in design components before those components are delivered into the larger system and eventually sent to manufacturing. The team is based in Austin and collaborates with teams across the globe. Engineers on this team will interact with architects, RTL designers, performance engineers, and post-silicon validation engineers and will have an opportunity to learn about Infinity Fabric architecture, SystemVerilog/UVM, and the chip design process for advanced CPU and GPU Products. Team members may also participate in developing and maintaining the software infrastructure used to enable the larger engineering team (think DevOps but for a hardware engineering team).

THE PERSON

The right candidate will have coursework in software development, digital design, and possibly computer architecture. He or she may also have prior internship experience, but that is not required. The candidate will be comfortable interacting with a diverse set of colleagues, self-motivated to solve problems, and proactive to get help when needed.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

Studying towards a Bachelors or Masters degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science.

WHAT ELSE ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

Being active in a student organization, holding a part-time job, or having a passion for a hobby outside of coursework is a plus!
