High-power accelerators are being studied for several projects based on high-flux neutron sources driven by proton or deuteron beams. Since the front end is the most critical part of such accelerators, it has been decided to build a High-Intensity Proton Injector (IPHI) designed to accelerate a cw 100 mA beam up to 11 MeV. The aim is to validate design codes, test technical choices, demonstrate operational reliability and measure the beam parameters in order to optimize the high-energy part of
