In 2003, we formed Device Solutions with the earnest intent to employ people first and make a profit second, walking away from the corporate world after repeatedly laying off hardworking engineers. The company began operations in Chris' barn in Hillsborough, North Carolina and in 2004 moved to the First Flight Venture Center. In 2010, we expanded into our current space in Morrisville, and in early 2022, we acquired Raptor Wireless Labs, strengthening our RF skills and adding antenna design to our capabilities. Today we have a team of 40+ in our Morrisville office, and have been leading wireless device development for over 20 years.

Nicole Poindexter,
Energicity
"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."
