I have a chip, XC9572XL that is encrypted. I am trying to do a repair on a board, I redesigned the board, but this chip is encrypted and I am unable to get the information off so I can put it on to a different type of chip. Does anyone know how to do this and or do it? Thanks

If it's for a redesign, the simplest and fastest way is to use a logic analyzer but for a limited budget you can also use decapping...

How did you manage to redesign the board?

For a good logic analyzer look at Keysight, Tektronix or Rohde & Schwarz.


Every major sellers also offer rentals for much less if it's a one of project.

Basically all I want to do is take the code that is on the current chip, and burn it onto a new chip. No idea what that logic analyzer or anything is. But when you try and read the chip it states it is protected.

Yes to extract the code you need a logic analyzer or de-capping, if you are not familiar with those procedures you may be better off giving this task to an expert.

Yeah no one does illegal things like that other than China, Russia and some other hazardous countries. Highly probable they take the money and run.
