The RFQ of IFMIF-EVEDA project is characterized by very challenging specifications, with 125 mA of deuteron accelerated up to 5 MeV. After the long period of conceptual and comprehensive design of IFMIF accelerator, the decision of the construction of its low energy part has implied a new analysis of the RFQ design. In particular the beam dynamics design has been optimized, with a consistent reduction of the structure length and power consumption, and improvement of the performances in terms of beam losses. The resonator, of four vanes kind, has been designed taking advantage of the theoretical background and experimental experience gained in Europe with IPHI and TRASCO projects. The mechanical design has been analysed considering different approaches, involving vacuum brazing, laser or e-beam welding.
