Device Solutions is a full-service embedded engineering firm located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. A virtual R&D department for companies of all sizes since 2003, we offer product development services, including feasibility studies, embedded hardware and firmware design and development, industry and regulatory certifications and approvals, and manufacturing support. We have broad experience across the vertical marketplace, including medical, asset tracking, remote monitoring and control, consumer electronics, home and office automation, and utilities.
We specialize in wireless + low power devices that monitor, measure, control, compute, and communicate.
Device Solutions can shepherd your device through a wide variety of regulatory and industry
tests and certifications including FCC, UL, Bluetooth, and cellular carriers. We identify the required certifications and approvals and test the high-risk parametrics.
Device Solutions is also an end-to-end provider of cellular data services for IoT, and are widely considered experts in sensors and mesh networking. With a core expertise in wireless, our engineering consultancy created Cellio, an IoT ecosystem for data collection, remote control and monitoring, and exception alerts that communicate through cellular or Wi-Fi. Device Solutions has recently introduced a low-power ATSC 3.0 (NextGen TV) datacasting receiver, and helped build an end-to-end solution for first responders.
Our 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 offer reference solutions for a low-power sensor system (Cellio) for end-to-end communications and control; and for a mobile ATSC 3.0 receiver for datacasting applications (such as emergency paging).
We use our engineering expertise to provide quality products to our customers. Collaborating with our team, our customers, 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."
