Nuclear fusion is a phenomenon in which the nucleuses of hydrogen crash between them, causing helium atoms. The resulting nucleus is heavier than the hydrogen nucleuses, but is lighter than the addition of the masses of the nucleuses involved in the process. This phenomenon releases huge amounts of energy. The research group i2a2 develops the study and development of instrumental devices within the thermonuclear fusion field. Fusion devices, such as ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), must monitor and process a large number of acquisition channels. Intelligent Data Acquisition Systems are defined as systems that are able to acquire data and process it in the same device. It is possible to develop more powerful solutions using analog-to-digital converters that are closely tied to FPGA, which allows the customization of the processing to match specific features, thereby getting optimal results. Is in this context where the final degree project, titled: Developing Acquisition Systems based on FPGA with OpenCL, is located. It has the purpose of providing a reference design for an acquisition system implemented in a SoC-FPGA, based on the ADC that available in the board, to acquire the signals. The development of the data acquisition system in the FPGA, by using the OpenCL framework, allow the parallelization of tasks. This result in an optimal work environment to elaborate systems able to perform the data acquisition, the processing and the response in matching real-time constrains.
