We strive for execution excellence while being direct, humble, collaborative, and inclusive of diverse perspectives. This is who we are at our best. One Company. One Team.

AMD together we advance_

The Product Verification group is looking for a motivated Software Engineer to design and implement pre-/post-silicon validation infrastructure for AMD 7nm FPGA products and beyond. Your main responsibility is to develop automated system/tools for silicon test patterns generation/release, for the industry’s cutting-edge FPGA products. Automation tools include but are not limited to block and full-chip level simulation flow, FPGA test design synthesis/implementation, Scan/MBIST/IJTAG patterns creation, ATE test sequence generation, and test data analytics. The automation tools will be used by multiple teams to help improve their work efficiency and productivity.

Job Responsibilities

  • Develop automation scripts to create complex Verilog/VHDL netlist, compile and simulate various individual hardware blocks as well as full-chip SOC level
  • Develop tools to analyze simulated circuit behaviors at different levels of design hierarchy
  • Work with test development engineers across functional and structural test functions to innovate finest test generation flow to minimize chances of human introduced errors
  • Enhance existing FPGA synthesis/implementation tools/flow by adding proper resources/timing constraints to generate robust test patterns that are scalable across product families
  • Invent automated tool for post-silicon validation test sequence that works across test methods and hardware test platforms e.g., bench system board and Automatic Test Equipment (ATE)
  • Explore and implement innovative data analytics flow/tools to process large amount of manufacturing test/debug data to improve pattern debug efficiency, by applying state-of-the-art AI/Machine-learning algorithms


  • A Bachelor/Master’s Degree in Computer Science/Electrical Engineering or equivalent
  • 1-3 years of experience in engineering tools development
  • Proficient in Python and Perl/Shell scripting in Linux environment
  • Exposure to VHDL/Verilog and experience in development of FPGA design is highly desirable
  • Exposure to data visualization tool such as Tableau and Power BI will have added advantage
  • Knowledge of functional simulation environments for pre-silicon verification is a plus
  • Prior knowledge of structural or functional verification methodologies is a plus
  • Familiar with automation and system regression testing is also a plus
  • Good communication skills and analytical thinking
