The CLIC RF power source is based on a new scheme of electron pulse compression and bunch frequency multiplication using injection by transverse RF deflectors in an isochronous ring. In this paper we describe the modifications needed in the present LEP Pre-Injector (LPI) complex at CERN in order to perform a low-charge test of the scheme. The design of the isochronous ring lattice, of the matched injection line, of the modified linac and injector layout and optics, and of the new thermionic gun are presented. The results of preliminary isochronicity measurements made on the present installation are also discussed.
