AMD hiring engineers with ARM experience

Tue May 01, 2012 8:05 am

I just came across this job post at AMD for a Technical Architect:
and thought it was interesting because it lists under "must have" skills and experience:
  • High performance ARM processor and ARM system integration experience
  • Experience with ARM power management, debug, SW
  • Knowledge on ARM based SoC fullchip verification a plus
and under "nice to have" experience:
  • ARM application processor experience, specifically ARMv7 architecture, or “A” series-A8, A9, A15

So ARM is definitely part of their new ambidextrous design approach (there are those rumours circulating that they want to buy MIPS and so people have been saying that maybe ARM isn't a go at AMD...).

Anyway, I guess it's all fairly obvious, but I thought I'd pass it on as from memory they never explicitly stated that they'd start doing ARM chips.

Thanks for the heads up. I just posted a topic in this CPU section regarding AMD post-2014. Hey, if ARM proves to be a world-changer, who knows, AMD's next architecture after Bulldozer won't be x86, but ARM. I'd love a world ruled by a more efficient ISA such as ARM rather than a complex ISA founded on CISC. Should be fun to watch.
