Does Semiconductors Research accept microcontrollers with electrically damaged pins?
Yes, we do, on higher rate, as it requiring additional research on IC net restoring.

What is reverse engineering?
Reverse engineering is generally defined as examining a completed product. Re intent of understanding the technology and process used in its design, manufacture, or operation. Normally, this is done for competitive analysis, and sometimes for the purpose of building and selling a similar product. It is legally and ethically acceptable for a company to purchase a commercially available product, to analyze it thoroughly, to design and develop a similar product and a method for its manufacture.

Is reverse engineering legal?
Yes, reverse engineering is legal, it helps to educate engineers and promote healthy competition all around the world. Reverse-engineering is used for many purposes: as a learning tool; as a way to make new, compatible products that are cheaper than what's currently on the market; for making software interoperate more effectively or to bridge data between different operating systems or databases; and to uncover the undocumented features of commercial products.

How do you find logos left by creators of the chips?
Semiconductors Research Inc. has laboratory equipment capable of magnifying IC's, so the logos become visible. Images' size may vary between 200 to 500 times of the actual size.

Can you do microcode extraction?
Semiconductors research does microcode extraction. We can do code extraction from many protected microcontrolers, CPLD's and other IC's.

Can you make a working copy of any IC (ASIC)?
No, we do not manufacture IC's. But we can de-process your IC and suply you with comprehensive analysis report. Including: die photo imaging, net list extraction and die circuits analysis.

Do you provide ASIC design services ?
We can provide such services, additional conditions apply.
