Hi, thank you for your kind attention. Lucky someone here knows well STCs.. I've a club light "LED bar" driven by DMX line, inside there is an STC 12c5616ad and repairing the lamp I broken it. There is no service for this lamp available so I would like to clone one STC reading the firmware from an equal lamp (I have). Is that possible? I downloaded the datasheet but they don't talk about firmware protection, neither how to dump it, if you never deal with such feature, do you know someone who has experience how to proceed? I've another question, it looks programming these chips need only an RS232 port on a PC and some components to interface the RS232 line levels (to TTL), I got it right? Then it looks very simple to program/read it. Thank you a lot for your kind support

Thank you for answering, I got from experts the right answer, the STC bootloader natively doesn't support the read feature, so it's impossible to dump anythig and that means it's the best protection ever, and always. THere is nothing to do here. To know more, you may read here: https://github.com/grigorig/stcgal/issues/18
