There exists a possibility of doing a 'live decap' leaving the bond wires and legs intact of a chip when decapping it (hence leaving the chip alive/functional; this was successfully done by digshadow on the upd1771 scv sound mcu before we knew how to electronically dump those), but it is much more involved than a normal decap is.
