  Because of advances in niobium cavity resonator design and the continuing development of small helium cryocoolers, superconducting RF linacs have become a viable industrial technology for low-cost, high-power electron beams. These beams are being used to produce high-flux bremsstrahlung x-ray and neutron sources for commercial applications, particularly for the production of radioisotopes. This contribution will cover recent developments in commercial superconducting accelerator technology including thermionic cathode electron guns, superconducting cryomodules, helium cryocoolers, microwave sources, and target stations for the production of medical and industrial isotopes including molybdenum-99 and actinium-225. Machines at different stages of development span the energy range from 2-40 MeV and powers up to hundreds of kW. Connections will be made to high-power machines for high-throughput x-ray sterilization and accelerator-driven systems with electron beams.
