It has been nearly a year and a half since Microsoft and Sony launched their respective next-generation game consoles.As a custom chip supplier for Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation, AMD is also actively preparing to continue to provide hardware support for new products.
According to netizens, AMD recently released a job posting for a “system-on-chip verification engineer”, hinting at the company’s latest design trends.
According to AMD’s job posting, the company is recruiting a SoC verification engineer for the team behind its PlayStation/Xbox custom chips to help develop next-generation chipset designs.
Selected candidates will work closely with front-end designers to work on multiple verifications. It also requires interaction with internal and external design verification development teams and direct communication with tool vendors.
As for the eligibility requirements for this position, AMD expects candidates to be proficient in object-oriented programming languages. A solid foundation in digital logic, circuits and Verilog hardware description language is a priority for the company’s SoC verification team.
For ordinary gamers, XSX / XSS and PS5 consoles are still difficult to buy, so it seems that console manufacturers do not need to develop next-generation system hardware prematurely. But for friends who are familiar with the game industry, this arrangement is quite normal.
