The proposed Project X Injector Experiment (PXIE) is currently under development at Fermilab. PXIE is an R&D test accelerator that will replicate the front-end portion of Project X. The PXIE accelerator complex consists of a H ion source(s), low-energy beam transport (LEBT), 162.5 MHz normal conducting CW Radio-Frequency-Quadrupole (RFQ) accelerator, medium-energy beam transport (MEBT), broad-band beam chopper(s) and two superconducting cryomodules. In this paper, we will review and present recent progress of the PXIE RFQ, which will include an overview of the RFQ beam dynamics design, RF structure design, detailed thermal and mechanical analyses, fabrication test results and fabrication plan and schedule.
