Read our blog?  Then you know we take this seriously.  However, chip decapping and related activities are capital intensive.  For this project to remain viable, we need support.  For reference, the pilot project took over $2500 of our own funds, not even counting the time we put into it.



We are currently planning Q1 2017.  We'd like to break even for the previous work and secure funds to continue the project.  Expenses include things like:
  • Equipment
  • Practice samples
  • Custom PCBs
  • Consumables like acid, acetone, gloves, etc
As such, we've posted rewards to cover the next 2-3 months of work.  See them for details.

For the time being we are focusing on the original sample lot. If you are contributing hoping to see work outside of that, please contact us before contributing.



Can't contribute financially?  We will also be looking to the community for help acquiring samples.  Stay tuned for more info.
