The FRIB driver linac accelerates all the stable ion beams including uranium over 200 MeV/u with a CW beam power of 400 kW in order to produce isotopes as rare as possible. Except for 0.5 MeV/u RFQ, the linac is making use of superconducting (SC) RF technology. The beam power, which is an order of 2.5 as high as those of existing SC heavy ion linac, gives rise to many technical challenges as well as beam physics related ones. In particular, the uranium beam loss power density is approximately 30 times as high as the proton one with the same beam energy per nucleon and the same beam power. For this reason, the machine protection system needs a special care. Another example of the technical challenges is to install beam focusing solenoid as close as possible to SC cavities in order to ensure the frequent beam focusing both longitudinally and transversely. The talk reviews all these challenges with development results of their mitigation as well as construction status.
