Video Encode/Decode HW – MTS Silicon Design Verification Engineer – 130804

Advanced Micro Devices inc.

This is a Contract position in Markham, ON posted May 12, 2022.

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.



Video Encode/Decode HW – MTS Silicon Design Verification Engineer



The Multimedia Video HW (hardware) IP/Solution Group at the AMD is looking for an experienced ASIC Design Verification (DV) Engineer to fill this Member of Technical Staff role doing video HW end-to-end feature test planning, test infrastructure architecture, test development & debug.on both a model & the HW solution
You will join a vibrant established hardware (HW) IP team developing video encoder & video decoder HW IP (VCN). This is a multifaceted role that extends beyond verification to helping optimize the HW solution.
The role will require you to acquire background knowledge of the VCN HW functionality, VCN HW C-model, and existing HW verification test suites. Your initial task will be to work, as part of a team, on enhancing an existing working VCN HW design & modifying infrastructure to support a new set of tools through debug & validation. You will be actively involved in running functional test suites for all functionality (decode, encode, etc.) on the RTL HW design & debugging & resolving any functional failures to ensure the HW design is fully functional.
You may also be part of a verification team, collaboratively executing on developing, implementing, and debugging a comprehenive test library and suite of functional tests to validate new features & complete end-to-end video HW solution functionality. This would include validating that test scenarios run on a HW C-model function correctly and as intended. It may also involve debugging these same end-to-end test scenarios on the HW design. Realizing full functional coverage of the HW design functionality is the goal.


The candidate should have strong C & C++ programming experience applied in a work environment to develop & implement solutions to practical problems, hands-on experience viewing & debugging HW simulation waveforms.  The ability to read and interpret HW verilog code to understand designs when debugging & solving problems would be an asset.


* An organized, enthusiastic self-motivated with a strong interest in HW design verification
* Be a self-starter with a pro-active approach, taking ownership in driving tasks to completion
* Strong problem-solving skills, and attention to detail
* Good interpersonal skills (verbal and written)
* Ability to work both independently and in a multi-discipline team and global setting as a solution enabler


* modifying & debugging the VCN HW infrastructure environment to support a new set of tools
* validate & debug the existing test suite of an existing VCN HW design in a new environment to confirm correct functionality & identify test & coverage enhancements
* execute verification plans for new Video HW features to implement new test cases, test scenarios, and required test library changes to enable validating required functionality
& then do hands-on debug of these scenarios on the HW model to validate & confirm correct operation.
* Leverage or adapt test libraries, emulation models, and test cases from existing IP.
* Work with ASIC design team (HW, FW and SW) to debug & solve test failures at IP level
* Automate and improve test suite verification efficiency and test suite coverage


* A minimum of 5 years (ideally 10+ years) of hands-on industry design verification experience in HW ASIC product development
* Excellent debugging skills, root cause analysis and attention to detail
* Proven & strong C/C++ software development experience
* Prior knowledge in HW IP testing
* Experience with simulation debug of HW using waveforms and other design verification tools.
* Strong understanding of video codecs such as H.264/AVC, H.265/HEVC, and AV1 is highly desirable
* Strong understanding of hardware principles including Verilog RTL, UVM, test bench and HW verification


Minimum BSEE/CE, or equivalent degree in related engineering disciplines or computer science
