About FranksMicro

FranksMicro LLC provides IoT Security, Microcontroller Hardware and Software Design, and Software Development services. We are located in the Colubmus, Ohio area. Here is some background information on our company.

Hi, I'm Frank, the owner of FranksMicro LLC. I have over 30 years of professional software development experience working for a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies, ranging from retail to engineering to pharmaceutical. In addition, I have been building electronics circuits and writing microcontroller software for just as long, having built my first microprocessor circuit on a breadboard while in college.

In 2018, I decided to leave the corporate world and go into business for myself. My desire was to devote more time to the areas I enjoy most and where I feel there are significant needs that the marketplace is not presently meeting adequately.

One big need I see at the present time is security evaluation for IoT products. Almost every week, I read of new incidents such as the hijacking of IoT thermostats and other smart devices for denial of service attacks, consumer drones uploading their footage to unknown servers when connected to a user's home network, and "smart" TVs uploading detailed viewing logs and sometimes even room audio to third-party servers. I have the experience needed to understand what goes on "under the hood" with the microcontrollers in IoT products, as well as to analyze network communications by these devices.

In addition to IoT security, FranksMicro also offers microcontroller hardware and software design servies. If you need custom functionality that is not available in the consumer products market, or simply wish to deal only with software you can audit yourself, FranksMicro can develop a solution for you!
