AppliedLogix was formed to fill a critical engineering resource gap in Fortune 500 product development teams. As engineering teams shrink and time-to-market demands heat up, the availability of highly specialized, mature engineers is critical. AppliedLogix is staffed exclusively with senior-level electrical and software engineers with proven commercialization track records.
We look forward to meeting you to discuss your challenge, but in the meantime, our biographies demonstrate some of our areas of engineering expertise and past successes:
Mr. Herrmann has 25 years of industry experience designing and commercializing embedded electronics subsystems. He has developed, and continues to refine a rigorous yet lean electronics design methodology that has consistently delivered first-pass success as characterized by reliable operation and robust EMC characteristics. Jim's product applications experience is diverse, from very high-performance digital signal and image processing, to production digital printing, to low power handheld wireless devices.
Jim began his engineering career at Eastman Kodak, where he worked for 14 years as a design engineer and new product development team leader. He then moved on to Xerox, where he was a development manager within their wide-format printer division.
Jim co-founded InSciTek Microsystems, a Rochester-based high-tech startup. During his 8 year tenure, he was integral to the conception and execution of the business formation and growth strategy that built and then leveraged the success of InSciTek's consulting operations into the Allworx product division. Allworx, acquired by PAETEC (NASDAQ:PAET) in 2007, designs and manufactures a family of award-winning VOIP business communications systems.
Jim received his BSEE degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and his MSEE degree from the University of Rochester. He is an active member of the Rochester chapter of the IEEE.
Mr. Griffith wields a diverse engineering background with extensive experience both managing product deveopment teams and as a technical contributor. Steve specializes in analog/digital circuit design and simulation, trade-off studies, process development, and systems requirements. Steve is an expert in the design of safety-critical electronics and software, including portable medical devices and railway control systems.
Mr. Griffith led the development of the leading wireless smart infusion pump, and a next-generation digital control system for a high frequency, high power plasma delivery system for the semiconductor industry. Steve has also directed, managed, or participated in the development of:
Large scale, transaction-based smart card micropayment systems.
Portable, multiband radio development and deployment.
Vital embedded electronic systems for the railway signaling industry.
Electronic hardware development, including scan converter hardware for high resolution image generators for flight simulation & training applications.
Embedded control systems for the entertainment industry.
Steve completed his BSEE at Rochester Institute of Technology, and MSCE at Syracuse University. Additionally, Steve has completed graduate level courses in Electrical Engineering at RIT.
In addition to his work at AppliedLogix, Mr. Griffith is also owner of Big Oak Vineyards, a producer of high quality vinifera grapes located in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York.
A dedicated software engineering professional, Mr. Caruso brings over twenty years of product delivery experience to the AppliedLogix team. He has a deep background developing hard real-time embedded applications for a variety of hardware architectures, and extensive experience developing multithreaded applications on Windows and Linux using a variety of GUI frameworks. He has worked in a number of technology domains, with his most recent work in the delivery of safety-critical automotive controllers.
Angelo recognizes that software engineers are standing on the shoulders of giants and believes that the best solution to a problem is usually a combination of new technologies with the tried and true, never losing focus on sound engineering principles. Mr. Caruso has a passion for learning and loves the opportunity to work in new technology domains.
Prior to joining AppliedLogix, Angelo spent a busy year running his own consulting business, Code Critical LLC. Before that he worked for nine years growing the consulting business at Allworx Corporation, during which time it was acquired by PAETEC. Angelo began his career with 13 years at Xerox, where he gained extensive domain expertise in networked printing products and also had stints in systems engineering and marketing.
Mr. Caruso holds a BS in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Clarkson University, a MS in Optics from the University of Rochester, and a MBA from the Simon Graduate School of Business.
Angelo also serves as Treasurer of The Dream Factory of Rochester Inc., an all-volunteer, not for profit organization that fulfills the dreams of critically and chronically ill children in the greater Rochester area.
Mr. Corey is a knowledgeable and intuitive electronics design engineer with extensive experience in the design of electronics systems and subsystems in support of advanced development and research projects. He is known for his ability to derive workable solutions to difficult design challenges using a diverse combination of analog hardware, digital hardware, FPGAs and software: despite the evolving design requirements inherent in this arena of electronics design. Dick's strengths lie in his knowledge of electronics in multiple disciplines and ability to understand the problems and formulate solutions.
Analog circuit design and SPICE simulation
Digital circuit design with FPGAs and discrete logic
Design for USB, I2C, PCI, PCI Express
Circuit board design
Software for microprocessors and computers using “C”, Visual Basic 6
Additional specialties include FPGA, SPICE, Analog, Digital, Microprocessor, LED, and Laser.
Mr. Rea is an electrical & embedded systems engineer with multi-disciplinary experience including analog and digital design, test and debugging, integration, software development, supplier management and manufacturing. He is interested in projects and products that generate enthusiasm by positively impacting the lives of their users. David's specialties include digital and analog circuit design, high voltage instrumentation, embedded software development, electromagnetic compatibility, requirements aggregation, supplier management, Linux system and server administration.
David holds both a BS in Electrical Engineering and a MS in Software Engineering from the Rochester Institiute of Technology (RIT).
