We present the current status of our Project-X half-wave resonator cryomodule development effort. The Project-X injector requires a single cryomodule with 9 superconducting, 162.5-MHz, β = 0.11, half-wave resonators interleaved with 6 integrated superconducting solenoids/steering coils. This cryomodule is being designed and build by ANL with the intent of delivering a device which has all external connections to the cryogenic, RF, and instrumentation systems located at removable junctions separated from the clean cavity vacuum system. Issues include the ease of assembly, cavity cleanliness, interfacing to subsystems (e.g., cryogenics, couplers, tuners, etc.), and satisfying the ANL/FNAL/DOE guidelines for vacuum vessels. We employ proven warm-to-cold low-particulate beamline transitions to minimize unused space along the linac, a top-loading box design that minimizes the size of the clean room assembly, and compact beamline devices to minimize the length of the focusing period.
