ASAM e. V. (Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems) is a non-profit organization that promotes standardization of tool chains in automotive development and testing. Our members are international car manufacturers, suppliers, tool vendors, engineering service providers, and research institutes. ASAM standards are developed by experts from our member companies and are thus based on real use cases. They enable easy exchange of data or tools within a tool chain. ASAM is the legal owner of these standards and is responsible for their distribution and marketing.

ASAM standards define file formats, data models, protocols, and interfaces for tools that are used for the development, test, and validation of electronic control units (ECUs) and of the entire vehicle. The standards enable easy exchange of data and tools within a tool chain. They are applied worldwide.
