  The Elettra new full energy injector will be based on a 100 MeV linac and a 2.5 GeV booster synchrotron and it will replace the existing 1.2 linac injector. This paper presents the design, construction and the test results of the RF system for the booster synchrotron. The analysis of the foreseen operating scenario is also described. The system must be as simple and reliable as possible, taking into consideration the high availability required for the possible top-up mode of operation. It has also to be consistent with the other upgrades of the facility, as the upgrade of the storage ring RF system. The booster RF system will use a 500 MHz 5-cell copper cavity powered by a 60 kW klystron based power plant. The low level electronics has been in-house developed, starting from the system in operation in the storage ring, increasing the performances and developing the new features required by the use of a five-cell cavity, instead of a single cell one, and by the ramped operation. The commissioning of the new injector is scheduled to start in summer 2007, while the first Elettra operation for users with the new full energy injector is expected for the first quarter of 2008.
