MEMPHYS is a 0,5 Mton scale Water Cerenkov detector proposed for deep underground installation. Its performance with neutrino beams includes the possibility of measuring the mixing angle θ13, the CP violating phase δ and mass hierarchy. In addition, it would have an unprecedented reach for nucleon decay searches and for supernova neutrino detection. One R&D item currently being carried out is Memphyno, a small-scale prototype. Its main purpose is to serve as a test bench for new photodetection and data acquisition solutions, such the grouped readout and HV feeding system We will present the aims and status ofMemphyno.
