JT-60U's diagnostic systems have been using CAMAC systems for their control and data acquisition. But the transient recorders used to store the diagnostic data are rather old and lack in memory expansion. Therefore, for a long pulse discharge of more than 15 seconds, data sampling rate must be reduced to cover the whole discharge period. The acquired data has, however, low time resolution and is sometimes insufficient for detailed analysis. To solve this problem, the transient recorders should be replaced with those having larger memory, but without modification to the existing data processing infrastructure. For this purpose, we have developed a new data acquisition system with SPARC CPU on VMEbus and the associated software, to retain the functionality of CAMAC control. We have applied this system to the existing bolometric diagnostics. In this paper, detail of design will be described.
