Abstract In Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR), various diagnostics systems were operated from the first plasma in 2008. Many diagnostic devices have been installed for measuring the various plasma properties such as plasma current, magnetic current, electron density, electron temperature, impurity, and so on. The DAQ system for measuring the various plasma properties were developed with various form factor digitizer such as VME, CPCI, PXI, VXI. and PCIe. These complicated form factors installed on KSTAR have difficulties with hardware management, software management and performance upgrades. In order to control real-time systems using several diagnostic signals, the real-time control system is required to share the data without delay between the diagnostic measurement system and the real-time control system without branch one signal. Therefore, we developed the Multifunction Control Unit (KMCU) as the standard control system MTCA.4 form-factor and implemented the various diagnostic DAQ system using KMCU V2, that is KMCU-Z30. This paper will present the implementation of KSTAR diagnostic DAQ systems configured with KMCU based on MTCA.4 and their operating results.
