High continuous wave (cw) current of highly charged ion beams are required for several heavy ion accelerator facilities including the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). In most cases, Electron-Cyclotron-Resonance (ECR) ion sources remain the only ion source capable to meet the beam intensity requirement for these facilities. Performances of ECR ion source have increased by several order of magnitude since their inception in the 1970s mostly driven by increasing the resonance frequency with today current state of the art ECR ion source operating from 24 to 28 GHz. This paper provides an overview of recent advance in the design and operation of ECR ion source including plans to develop the next generation of ion source capable of operating above 40 GHz. A detailed account of the design and status of the new superconducting ECR ion source in construction for FRIB will also be reported.
