Sayma is part of the Sinara family of ARTIQ-compatible hardware originally designed for use in atomic/molecular/quantum physics. A Sayma system consists of AMC, RTM and BaseMod mezzanine modules housed in a MicroTCA (µTCA) rack.

The Sayma AMC is a Advanced Mezzanine Card carrier board to carry FMC cards and connect RTM modules. It provides high-speed digital logic and memory.
