  In summer 2019 the IFMIF/EVEDA Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) accelerated its nominal 125 mA deuteron beam current up to 5 MeV, with 90% transmission for pulses of 1 ms at 1Hz. The Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator (LIPAc) is a high intensity deuteron linear accelerator; it is the demonstrator of the International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF). In particular the RFQ is the longest and most powerful ever operated. An intense campaign of measurements have been performed in Rokkasho to characterize several performances of this complex machine: transmission, emittances, energy spectrum and beam loading. The history and the results of the commissioning until this important project milestone are here described. An overview of the activities planned to reach CW operation is also presented.
