  The KEKB B-factory is under an upgrade construction for the SuperKEKB. To achieve 40 times higher luminosity, the linac is required to inject electrons and positrons with higher intensities (e-: 1 nC → 5 nC, e+: 1 nC → 4 nC) and lower emittances (e-: 300 → 20 μm, e+: 2100 → 10 μm). This paper describes the upgrade scheme of the positron source. A new positron capture section will have larger transverse and energy acceptances by introducing a flux concentrator and large aperture L-band and S-band accelerating structures. Beam line layout and quadrupole focusing system will be rearranged for the enlarged beam acceptance. Beam optics is designed to be compatible for positron and electron beams with different energies and emittances. Pulsed quadrupoles and steering magnets are added for better flexibility in optics and orbit tuning. Parameter optimization of the positron source by optics calculation and particle tracking simulation is described.
