So this is what I posted...This is not correct, ROM's of all descriptions can be read with a reader or on the bench. That include mask programed ROM's, EPROM's, Program once EPROM's, EEPROM's etc etc .
The only time we needed to go into the chip is to diagnose failures or back Engineer the design or process of a competitor, then Auger and electron microscopes are used.
So you are allowed to make incorrect statements and have people believe things that aren't true because your incorrect statements were off-topic !!!
You are sounding more paranoid by the minute.
