Hi Lina,

Developed by Infineon, DAS, derived from acronym of “Device Access Server”, is an abstraction layer software between any third party debugger and the target system, and to be used in the application modes such debugging, tracing, calibration and measurement.
The DAS was designed for multi-device multi-core systems with very demanding emulation requirements, and to provide one single interface for all types of tools, which fulfils all performance and reliability needs.
The tool interface is on software level (DAS API) and implemented in a generic DLL (dynamic-link library). The abstraction of the physical device connection just becomes just a parameter value in the connection setup phase. During operation the physical connection (e.g. JTAG for real device or directly for C-models) is fully transparent for the tool. On DAS API level the physical device connection is represented by address based accesses (DAS Transaction Lists) and prioritized, stream based data exchange (DAS Channels).
DAS can be downloaded as a standalone tool or as a component of other tools, e.g. Memtool, from Infineon website. Please always try to install the latest version of DAS to ensure its compatibility to the computer OS. More information about the DAS can be found in
