Job Description:

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.

Physical Design Engineer - 93629 The Role

We drive flow enablement and optimization from synthesis through physical design closure and analysis on AMD's next generation high-speed processor using advanced technology nodes! Are you looking to work on the next generation of product?

The Person

The candidate should have strong analytical thinking and problem-solving skills with excellent attention to details. Must be organized, self-motivated and able to work effectively on teams small and large across sites. Will be tasked to prioritize multiple assignments and drive them to completion. Strong verbal and written communication skills are crucial for driving technical conversations to successful outcomes.

Key Responsibilities

  • Enable flow targets for sophisticated technology nodes and qualify them for cutting edge timing and power goals. May include floorplan, physical cell insertion, power grid creation, synthesis, placement, routing, and design closure.
  • Qualify advanced libraries and drive improvements for timing, power, and routing.
  • Evaluate macro releases to ensure robust design integration.
  • Develop advanced tool and flow features to improve PPA (power, performance, area).
  • Ensure robust formal verification of RTL against optimized gates.
  • Drive UPF based multi-voltage construction flow development and qualification.
  • Develop and implement strategies to optimize noise and electrical design closure.
  • Participate in design reviews and drive usage of standard methodologies. Preferred Experience:
    • Must have solid understanding of logic design, digital custom circuit design, and CAD tools including logic synthesis, place and route tools for high-performance design, and physical design closure.
    • Experience with power optimization is required.
    • Experience coding in various languages is important. Academic Credentials:

      Bachelors or Master's degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering preferred

      Physical Design Engineer, High Performance Core - 91943 The Role:

      We are part of the high-performance core physical design team. This role will work directly with external teams in CAD - DFT - Architecture; for example, working directly with the CAD team to fix flow steps. It is a great opportunity to learn from experienced designers.

      The Person

      The successful candidate will independently execute design work and contribute technically with a high general impact on the overall design. We are seeking someone who is innovative and eager to learn. Does this describe you? If so, then join us!

      Key Responsibilities
      • Implement working knowledge of principles of logic and transistor level circuit design, CAD tools and expertise in one of following functional areas (e.g., clocks, standard cell libraries etc., synthesis, place and route).
      • Innovate and improve the design. Point out lower power and higher performance tradeoffs.
      • Preparing schedules and scope several months in advance, such as building the analysis schedule for a given flow step or setting the delivery of a circuit macro across the project.
      • Prepare well thought out recommendations for technical reviews (e.g., standard cell architecture tradeoffs, bringing a list of various options to a technical review, then submitting a strong recommendation). Preferred Experience:
        • Proficiency in logic design, circuit design, CMOS transistor design, and CAD tools for high-performance design.
        • 5+ years circuit design experience preferred Academic Credentials:

          MS degree in Electrical Engineering preferred
