I've been considering ripping the firmware from the mcu as well.  I've not
got beyond the consideration stages, but i have all the equipment here at
work. When you say that the read option is not available. is this because
the chip has protection fuses enabled?

Also, what programmer do you have, Here at work I have a galep-5 which
AFAIK can read both the mcu and cpld/fgpa/pga, whatever it is (provided
they are not locked, or the state machine encrypted)
