Recent ECRIS development at KVI is motivated by a new experimental program, called TRI mu P, that aims to study fundamental symmetries and interactions by very precise measurements of decaying short-lived radioactive nuclides trapped in ion or atom traps. ECRIS produced heavy-ion beams are accelerated by the AGOR cyclotron and used as driver beams to produce the short-lived radionuclei of interest. This new experimental program puts new demands on the injector ECRIS, i.e. a variety of metal-ion beams and a significant intensity upgrade up to two-orders of magnitude. This report briefly summarizes what has been achieved up to now and what will be done in the near future to meet the challenges.
