We describe a proposed femtosecond synchrotron radiation x-ray source based on a flat-beam RF gun and a recirculating superconducting linac that provides beam to an array of undulators and bend magnets. X-ray pulse durations of <100 fs at a 10 kHz repetition rate are obtained by a combination of electron pulse compression, transverse temporal correlation of the electrons, and x-ray pulse compression.
