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 RTM uses AD9154 DACs. These DAC ICs support sample rates of up to 2.4 GSPS. Operation of the AD9154 DACs in the context of Sayma (sample rate) depends on how the system’s Smart Arbitrary Waveform Generator is configured. Sayma is currently in v2.0 prototyping. It can be ordered from Creotech.
