In the framework of the upgrade of the SPARC_LAB facility at INFN-LNF, named EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB, a high gradient LINAC has been foreseen. One of the most suitable options is to realize it in X-Band. A preliminary design study of the accelerating structures and power distribution system has been performed. It is based on 0.5 m long travelling wave (TW) accelerating structures operating on the 2π/3 mode and fed by klystrons and pulse compressor systems. The main parameters of the structures and LINAC are presented with the basic RF LINAC layout.
