A linear accelerating structure with an average loaded gradient of 100 MV/m at X-Band frequencies has been demonstrated in the CLIC study. Recently, it has been proposed to use this structure to drive an FEL linac. In contrast to CLIC the linac would be powered by klystrons not by an RF source created by a drive beam. The main advantage of this proposal is achieving the required energies in a very short distance, thus the facility would be rather compact. In this study, we present the structure choice and conceptual design parameters of a facility which could generate laser photon pulses below Angstrom. Shorter wavelengths can also be reached with slightly increasing the energy.
