In the frame of the SPARC-X project, the energy of the FEL accelerator SPARC, in operation at the INFNLNF laboratories, will be upgraded from 180 to 250 MeV by replacing a low gradient S-band travelling wave section with two C-band units, completely designed and developed at the Frascati laboratories. The new system consists of a 50 MW klystron, supplied by a pulsed modulator and a RF pulse compressor to feed 2 high gradient C-band structures. This paper deals with the design of the full system, the C-band R&D activity and study of the related beam dynamics.
