  Quite a number of projects worldwide develop proton driver linacs for neutron sources and other accelerator driven systems. One trend is to use a high duty factor and superconducting cavities as much as possible. Alternatively, one can aim on short duty factor and count on a continuing rapid development of pulsed rf amplifiers based on power transistor technology. A 500 mA, 5 % duty factor layout of a proton injector is presented, consisting of a filament driven volume ion source, of a 150 keV transport section and of a 4 m long 162 MHz RFQ up to 2 MeV beam energy. Beam dynamics results as well as the technical design will be shown.
