A full-size prototype microstrip sensor for the silicon tracker of the SDC detector to be used at the Superconducting Super Collider has been fabricated at Hamamatsu Photonics. The sensor is double-sided, using an AC-coupled readout with 50 μm pitch strips. The sensor size is 3.4 × 6.0 cm2. Polycrystalline silicon is used as a bias feeding resistor on both surfaces. Each ohmic strip is isolated by a p+ blocking line. The detailed requirements for the silicon tracker and the corresponding specifications as well as how to achieve them are discussed. The static performances of this prototype sensor are presented.
