The first phase of the SPARX project now funded by MIUR (Research Department of Italian Government) is an R&D activity focused on developing techniques and critical components for future X-ray FEL facilities. The aim is the generation of electron beams with the ultrahigh peak brightness required to drive FEL experiments. A FEL source realization is foreseen within this program, which comprises two lines of activity: a) the use of the SPARC high brightness photoinjector to test RF compression techniques and the emittance degradation in magnetic compressors due to CSR, b) the production of radiation in the range of 3-5 nm, both in SASE and SEEDED PEL configurations, in the so called SPARXINO test facility, based on the upgrade of existing Frascati 800 MeV LINAC. In this paper we present and discuss the preliminary start to end simulations results for SPARXINO. © 2005 IEEE.
