The p-linac will be a dedicated proton injector for antiproton production at FAIR (GSI Darmstadt). It will provide a 70 MeV/70 mA pulsed proton beam with a duty cycle of about 10-4. Therefore the RF of the normal conducting, coupled CH cavities* will be pulsed, too. In order to test the operation of those cavities, a test stand is under construction at GSI. The RF control hard- and software for the test stand is developed at TU Darmstadt. It is based on the digital low level RF control system, which is operational at the S-DALINAC**. Hardware as well as software had to be customized, in order to achieve pulsed operation within the given limits. These customizations as well as measurements from pulsed operation will be presented.

The FAIR project requires a dedicated proton injector for the creation of high intensity secondary antiproton beams. This machine will be the first high intensity linear accelerator based on CH-DTL. The status of the project, with particular emphasis on the construction of the first RF prototype is presented.
