    I would like to know about it. It could a link to an article or anything else!

    I know that is a process of 'extracting the layers' (first remove the plastic/metal shell) from a given IC and then taking pictures of these layers, am I right?

    But what we can do with those pics ('dies in high resolution')?

    How can we extract ROM data from this images?

    ps: I'm too newbie even to ask that, so please ask me for further explanation and forgive my mistakes.
