Code protect (not)

mikeselectricstuff:
I'm sure most of you have heard third & fourth-hand stories about Chinese guys offering de-protect services for microcontrollers by de-capping.
I just met up with a friend who who actually had it done on a recent PIC ( for a legit reason as it happens) - I was amazed at the cost - just GBP120, shipping included.

So bear that in mind when considering what it would cost for someone to copy your product...

Mechatrommer:
any mcu brands? maybe the protection should be within the software itself.

scrat:
Amazing! So these are not legends, it's really possible and affordable. It must involve not so expensive instruments, I guess...

Psi:
With all the knockoff products that appear on the market so quickly it wouldn't surprise me at all if there is equipment in china designed especially to do this. Maybe even automated to a degree.

Simon:
yep it probably happens left right and centre
