  In the framework of ASIF "ASI Supported Irradiation Facilities" project some beamlines available at Laboratori Nazionali del Sud-INFN (LNS) Catania have been dedicated to irradiation test. These beamlines have been recently upgraded in order to meet the ESA specifications about radiation hardness testing of devices suitable for space applications. The Superconducting Cyclotron K800 installed at LNS can provide protons up to 80 MeV for integrated dose tests and a number of heavy ion beams for Single Event Effect (SEE) studies. The beamlines are equipped with detectors that allow beam diagnostic in term of spatial uniformity, purity and energy measurement, including on-line monitoring of flux and fluence received by the device under test. Upgrades activities are now ongoing, especially to broaden up the number of available beams, both in terms of ion species and energy, to optimize the switching times from one beam to another. The paper will present an overview of the developed facility, which will take benefit of the ongoing SERSE (the superconducting ECR ion source) revamping: the new gas-box system, plasma chamber and controls system are ready to be installed within autumn 2018.
