A 200 MeV superconducting cyclotron for cancer therapy with proton has been designed with a compact and low-power resonant frequency (RF) cavity. This paper presents its design study by using a refined calculation using the MAFIA 3D code and measurements on a 1:1 scale model. Results on the resonance frequency, voltage distribution and power dissipation are reported together with main construction details.
