Fastino is a faster  DAC than Zotino, meant for more demanding applications like a servo with ADC input (in combination with Sampler) and voltage output.

Technical Parameters


  • 32 channels, 2.55 MS/s simultaneous, 16 bit resolution, 1 Gb/s aggregate, AD5542ABCPZ DAC with 1μs settling time,
  • Interface: dual EEM
  • Data/clock/LDAC masking on channels for intervals to suppress digital crosstalk, no contention between configuration and data.
  • Update rate on DAC masking: ~1 µs


  • PHY layer of framed data at 1 Gb/s over multilane LVDS with slower return channel (1 EEM), serialization/deserialization/framing.
  • DAC interface: PLL for SPI bitclock, sample clocking, CLR, LDAC.
  • Out-of-band configuration layer: configuration, LEDs, clocking, channel masking.
  • RTIO channel design baseline: 32×16 bit = 512-bit DAC data events on existing kernel/DMA/DRTIO infrastructure
  • ARTIQ core device API.


This module can be used for building control and measurement systems for optical and quantum physics experiments and quantum technologies development. In particular, the Sinara ecosystem is tailored to the needs of working with trapped ions and cold atoms. Compatible with ARTIQ software.
