What is a "SAM" or Signal acquisition module? Took my car to the mechanic and it had 7 codes, one was SAM-U1501. Can anyone tell me what this is?

The computer responsible for all the electronics in the smart. Basically most cars have a switch for everything and each switch has a relay that supplies power to the device in turn.(gross oversimplification). In the smart every switch sends a signal to the Sam. And Sam directs the power to the desired device.
