For overcoming limitation of convectional particle therapy, the development of Accelerator-based Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (A-BNCT) is in progress by Dawonsys Co. Ltd. Dawonsys developed a duoplasmatron ion source for A-BNCT and KBSI (Korea Basic Science Institute) is developing an Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Source (ECRIS) as alternative candidate of duoplasmatron. The proton ion source of A-BNCT must satisfy some requirements such as high voltage flatform over 50 kV, small emittance below 0.2 πmm.mrad, and high current over 50 mA. In this paper, we will report results of design study and manufacturing issues.
