Device Solutions is a full-service embedded engineering firm located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. We provide the inside-the-box engineering for your outside-the-box innovation.
As a virtual R&D department for companies worldwide since 2003, we have broad experience across the vertical marketplace. We offer product development services, testing and certification services, and reference designs. We specialize in wireless + low power devices that monitor, measure, control, compute, and communicate. Our projects include: an electrocardiogram device (wearable, custom antenna, FCC, FDA, carrier-approved); a smart pill dispensing system (touch screen, interactive, carrier-certified in the US, Canada, and the EU); a secure container for deliveries (Nordic, LTE Cat M1); a long-range drone beacon (BLE); an electric grid monitoring system (Cat 1 multi-sensor device, data stored in Google Cloud).
Our Device Solutions team of wireless engineers can assist your company by filling the gaps in your engineering expertise, or by providing full turnkey service - from inception to factory launch.

We have excellent relationships with cellular carriers and certification labs. We understand their requirements and will guide you through the certification process and expedite approvals. Our specialties include testing services, as well as carrier certification and approval services.
Reference Designs and IoT
We offer reference solutions for: 1) a low-power sensor system for end-to-end communications and control (IoT | Cellio), 2) a mobile ATSC 3.0 receiver for datacasting applications, such as emergency paging for first responders.
We use our engineering expertise to provide quality products to our customers. Collaborating with our team, our clients, and with industry partners, we've developed many products across a variety of industries, including: a wearable heart monitor (ECG), a touch screen 4G smart pill dispenser, several IoT asset trackers and container monitors, a telemetry system for firefighters, an award-winning laptop charging station, a brewery fermentation monitoring system, an IoT sensor system which monitors energy grid usage, a smart meter for solar power, and our patented agriculture feed bin solution using Cellio, our IoT ecosystem.
We are active in the tech community, regularly attending tradeshows (e.g., CES, NAB, RIoT Demo Night (part of All Things Open, PCB Carolinas), and presenting our award-winning devices in new markets (e.g., ATSC 3.0 first responder pager in Canada).
We are intent on helping steward the world forward, one invention and service project after another. Since 2003, we've supported several organizations, including: Citizen Schools, Congressman Price's STEM initiatives, the 4K for Cancer and Komen Race for the Cure, Hillsborough Youth Little League, Troop 461, solar power for African villages, the Orange Grove Volunteer Fire Department. We actively participate in the ASSIST ERC and Senior Design program at NC State.
"We are so pleased with our partnership with Device Solutions, and were thrilled when they suggested the opportunity to work with the senior design team NC State Electrical & Computer Engineering. We've done a lot of projects with college teams, and this was by far the best... with their taking our problem - getting more visibility into grid losses - and turning it into a real solution."
