Classic Edition

DAC supports a large number of different development tools - compilers, assemblers, debuggers. That is why it is necessary to set all tools, so that DAC can give its maximum. The Classic Edition offers the complete range of functionalities, but do to its general nature is not adjusted for any special tool. Classic Edition spans three categories:

    • Classic 8 - supports only 8-Bit Microcontroller ANSI C dialects
    • Classic 8/16 - supports only 8-Bit and 16-Bit Microcontroller ANSI C dialects
    • Classic Unlimited - supports all supported Microcontroller ANSI C dialects

Reader Edition
The Reader Edition is interesting for those who would like to not give up their environment, but would also like to use the power of DAC functionalities on their project. In the Reader Edition DAC has full functionality, with one limitation-writing is disabled in Editor, making DAC useful for researching and analyzing projects. As with the Classic Edition, the Reader Edition also has three categories:

    • Reader 8 - supports only 8-Bit Microcontroller ANSI C dialects
    • Reader 8/16 - supports only 8-Bit and 16-Bit Microcontroller ANSI C dialects
    • Reader Unlimited - supports all supported Microcontroller ANSI C dialects

Special editions
In association with development tool manufacturers, RistanCASE publishes special DAC editions with pre-configured tools, limited support (by leaving out the competitors), special plugins and setup procedure.

Licensing DAC is based on the FLEXlm library of the Globetrotter company. It falls into three groups.

Network Floating
On one computer on the network, in most cases on the file server, you install the so-called License Manager. This manager allows the maximal licensed number of DAC instances to be used on the network. The license is bound to the network card of this computer.

Node Locked
The license is bound to the network card of the computer and can be used only on this computer.

Dongle Locked
The license is bound to the Hardware key, so-called dongle. DAC supports Aladdin dongles. It is also possible to license DAC on Globetrotter FLEXid's (for example, if you already have this dongle of your compiler). We delivery only USB dongles.
