Infinity Fabric Verification Engineer - REQ: 143082
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 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. If you would like to read more about AMD architecture and the Infinity Fabric reference https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/infinity-architecture.
The fabric transport layer team is looking for pre-silicon verification engineers to help enhance its verification environment and methodology to support new types of AMD products. The transport layer of the interconnect is composed of the network of switches that move data within a given die paired with external links that allow the fabric to be extended onto additional dies.
Verification engineers are responsible for developing software models of design components using object-oriented SystemVerilog and the UVM verification library. The goal is to find bugs in design components before those components are delivered into the larger system and eventually sent to manufacturing. Team members may also develop and maintain software to facilitate unit testing of verification code and debug of complex simulation fails.
The team is based in Austin and collaborates with teams across the globe. Engineers interact with architects, RTL designers, performance engineers, and post-silicon validation engineers and have opportunities to develop deep expertise in parts of the Infinity Fabric architecture.
The team is comprised of a mix of senior engineers and recent graduates, making this an ideal opportunity for someone looking to contribute to AMD’s successes while working with a mentor to develop their verification skills.
The right candidate will
- Have exposure to verifying complex design blocks at the IP or SoC level using Verilog, System Verilog, UVM or related technologies via coursework or preferably internship or other work experience.
- Have a strong background in computer architecture and object-oriented software development.
- Have experience scripting in languages such as Ruby, Python or Perl.
- Be comfortable interacting with a diverse set of colleagues, self-motivated to solve problems, and proactive to get help when needed.
A minimum of a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science.
WHAT ELSE ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Internship experience developing software or working as part of a silicon design or verification team is required.
