Abstract
This paper briefly describes the main R&D objectives that are undertaken within the international R&D collaboration SiLC aiming to build the next generation of silicon tracking devices especially in the case of the ILC. Firstly, motivation to use silicon detectors in the tracker is explained. Then basic aspects of the design and solutions proposed are described (sensors, front-end electronics, mechanics, alignment). First results from the lab and beam test of the front-end chips and module prototypes built are shown.
