We care deeply about transforming lives with AMD technology to enrich our industry, our communities, and the world. Our mission is to build great products that accelerate next-generation computing experiences – the building blocks for the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming and embedded. Underpinning our mission is the AMD culture. We push the limits of innovation to solve the world’s most important challenges. We strive for execution excellence while being direct, humble, collaborative, and inclusive of diverse perspectives.

AMD together we advance_


The Role:

The Diagnostics team is responsible for developing tests and suites that exercise and validate the hardware blocks in the graphics chips designed at AMD. The successful candidates for this role will support our diagnostics development team, where you’ll gain an understanding of AMD’s GPU HW blocks.

We understand the features that go into the HW design, and we have the software skills to program them to life. Once developed these diagnostics are used in all aspects of the product lifecycle, from pre-silicon validation through the production life of the product.

The Person:

Diagnostics team requires a C++ or DV engineer to generate ATE patterns to achieve cost-savings, increase yield/die-to-ship and attain early time-to-market.

Daily work involves code development and debug in C++ in DV environment, running and debugging simulations for hardware developed in Verilog, waveform analysis using Verdi and running emulation on FPGA platforms.

You have an important role in ensuring robust diagnostics quality and feature coverage with opportunities to learn about HW features and SW/HW debugging. You will be asked to work across multiple hardware blocks, on different ASICs, and collaborate with teams across the company.

Key Responsibilities:

    • Enable C++ based diagnostics to be run as patterns on Automated Test Equipment (ATE)
    • Run and debug simulations based on these patterns for hardware developed in Verilog
    • Debug waveforms in Verdi
    • Run emulation on FPGA platforms for these patterns
    • Collaborate closely with design and diagnostics teams to understand and adapt C++ diagnostic algorithms for effective ATE testing.
    • Develop and optimize new ATE patterns
    • Troubleshoot and debug ATE patterns, working collaboratively with test engineers and design teams to address issues.
    • Maintain and enhance existing ATE patterns
    • Document the conversion process and maintain comprehensive records of ATE patterns and diagnostic algorithms.
    • Provide technical expertise in C++, Verilog, and DV to support seamless integration of converted patterns into the testing environment.
    • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to ensure the successful deployment of ATE patterns in production environments.
    • Contribute to continuous improvements in conversion processes

Preferred Experience:

  • Proven experience in semi-conductor industry as a low-level/embedded programmer or Hardware Design/DV engineer
  • Good knowledge and experience in software programming (C++, scripting)
  • Good knowledge and experience in Hardware Description Languages such as Verilog
  • Bonus if candidate has strong GPU architectureknowledge
  • Self-leadership and independence, along with excellent communication skills

Preferred Education:

  • BS or MS in Computer Engineering or Computer Science
