    I got a (PIC16F1936 8-bit) microcontroller and I was wonder what software and hardware I need to read what was written in this micro chip.

    Any suggestions be much appreciated.

    You might not be able to read it if it was code protected (commonly done in commercial products).
    If it isn't protected then a PICKIT3 and MPlab will get you a HEX file from the chip. The HEX file isn't much use apart from to make copies as making it back into usable code is very time consuming and difficult.

    A PICKIT 3 and MPLAB from microchip may do the job. But it is a BIG if. If the chip is code protected. You will not be able to get anything out of the chip. If it is taken from a commercial application. It is most likely that the chip is protected. However you do not know before you try it ;)
