3 Arbitration

The internal arbiter arbitrates between competing slave interfaces for access to the debug APB.

When a slave interface raises a request, the arbiter gives the highest priority to the slave interface with the lowest instance suffix. For example, Slave Interface 0 > Slave Interface 1 > Slave Interface 2 > Slave Interface 3. The order in which the slave interfaces raised their requests relative to each other is not used in arbitration.

The arbitration is re-evaluated after every access.
