Ruffino Joins Lab X Technologies as Embedded Digital Engineer

In a move that addresses the increased demand for efficient and affordable networking via IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) solutions, Lab X Technologies hired Chuck Ruffino as an embedded digital engineer.

With 20 years experience in the design/engineering field, Ruffino will help Lab X engineers’ development capabilities for hardware and gateway development.

“We are excited to begin drawing from Chuck’s experience and knowledge in the networking industry to continue augmenting our leading designs,” stated Lee Minich, president, Lab X Technologies. “I am confident Chuck will help deliver our clients the next generation of elite networking solutions.”

Ruffino’s experience spans a great range over the past two decades. Twenty years ago, he started as an electrical engineer with Xerox Corporation, where he held various positions over 10 years, including his final position, technical specialist. He then became a principal engineer for Intrinsix Corporation for two years and moved to Vanteon Corporation for eight years, serving as its chief technology officer, a position he held for two years.

“While I was surrounded by the design and engineering element at my previous positions, I fell away from the hands-on design aspect,” said Ruffino. “At Lab X, I will be able to combine my passion for designing and producing as a technical lead, with client interface in a manager-type role.”

Since 1996, Lab X has been an engineering design partner for mainstream companies with a dedicated and highly educated team of engineering specialists. With its extensive experience in applying Ethernet AVB networking, the company works to design and/or perfect products and solutions, providing complete, turnkey, scalable engineering and design services for even the most complex projects.

“Lab X Technologies is on the leading edge of IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging, driving the development and implementation of these industry standards. I’m looking forward to working with this exceptional team at this fast-paced, high-energy company,” continued Ruffino.
