Two more ion species, 20Ne⁶⁺ and 129Xe²⁶⁺, have been commissioned on the Front End and delivered to the superconducting linac during the beam commissioning of Linac Segment 1 (LS1) in March 2019. In August 2019, Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) conditioning reached the full design power of 100 kW continuous wave (CW) that is required to accelerate Ura-nium beams. Start-up/shutdown procedures and opera-tional screens were developed for the Front End subsys-tems for trained operators, and auto-start and RF fast re-covery functions have been implemented for the Front End RFQ and bunchers. In this paper, we will present the current commissioning status of the Front End, and per-formance of the main technical systems, such as the ECR ion source and RFQ.
