    hey,

    My question is pretty broad but what are some ways to extract the contents of RAM in a microcontroller?

    even if its not too feasable, any ideas you have would be appreciated

    A uC's RAM would only hold program variables. The EPROM holds the actual code. In a commercial device, there are links that will have been blown that prevent a third party from making a copy of the program.

    If you totally control the device you can just write code to copy ram out, same for flash. If they've set the security bits/fuses/etc you'd need other tools. The tools are not illegal per se but cracking their lock out is as is talking about doing so. The DMCA makes it illegal to tinker.
