    Within the framework of MINERVA, the first Phase of MYRRHA (Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications) project, IN2P3 labs are in charge of the development of several accelerator elements. Among those, a fully equipped Spoke cryomodule prototype was constructed. It integrates two superconducting single spoke cavities operating at 2K, the RF power couplers and the associated cold tuning systems. On the control side, a MTCA.4-based Low Level RadioFrequency (LLRF) system prototype has been implemented by IJCLab including FPGA specific firmware, a new µRTM frequency downconverter module from the company IOxOS Technologies and EPICS developments in collaboration with the SCK•CEN. The status of the LLRF system will be shown as well as its preliminary tests results.
