  The SuperKEKB is designed to produce 40 times luminosity than that of the KEKB. In order to realize such a high luminosity, the injector linac should provide both electron and positron beams of about 4-5 nC/bunch, which is several times higher than before. In addition, their emittance requirement of the injection beam to the rings is 20 microns, which is a factor of a few tens smaller than before. The intensity and emittance of the electron beam are realized directly by developing the photo RF gun. In contrast, the positron intensity is increased by adopting a higher capture efficiency system with flux concentrator followed by large-aperture accelerators, while its emittance is reduced by a damping ring. For preserving such a low emittance of both beams toward the injection to the rings, the suppression of the emittance growth is crucial. To this end, the alignment of the accelerator components should be a few tens of microns, where we need an improvement by more than a factor 10. The beam-based alignment is definitely needed with better-resolution BPMs. In the present paper are reviewed the overall progress and perspective of the design and the associated component developments.
