Client Platform Power Management Debug Engineer - 167521
Client Platform Power Management debug engineer work with our
Silicon Design and Firmware teams to implement cutting edge power
management solutions for our client processors. This is a hands-on
job that involves direct enablement of power management features in
a lab environment; enabling, validating and debugging new and
modified ways to provide the best performance at the lowest power
consumption. Exposure begins at the architecture level, working
with pre-silicon teams to maximize pre-silicon coverage,
post-silicon bring-up and enablement, and engagement through
production and working with customer facing teams for best
adoption. We get to work in a dynamic environment, directly with
the product, tools, motherboards, and BIOS/OS to take a new product
from creation to customer reality.
