This paper describes recent results obtained with a compact 2.45 GHz ECR Ion Source at the ECR ion sources test bench. The source was tested for production of helium and hydrogen ions with different configurations of Ultra High Frequency (UHF) coupler, UHF power and frequency. At the extraction voltage about of 10 kV and UHF power about of 100 W more than 500 µA of He + ions were produced with the extraction hole of 3 mm in diameter that corresponds to the current density of 7.5mA/cm2. The future possible upgrades of the ion source are also discussed.
