  The linac of Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), which is an injector to the synchrotron, comprises a 3-MeV RFQ, 50-MeV DTLs and the 181-MeV Separated-type DTLs. In order to increase the beam power of the synchrotron, the task of the 400-MeV energy upgrade of the linac started from March 2009. The tanks of the Annular-ring Coupled Structure (ACS) linac, RF sources, beam monitors and utilities are in production. Although some peripheral components of the ACS linac are prepared previously, the all ACS tanks will be installed and conditioned for 4 months from July 2013. Beam commissioning of the 400-MeV linac is scheduled to begin in October and expected to finish at the end of November 2013. In this paper, we present the current status of the energy upgrade and some R&D results for new equipment for ACS linac.
