The building block of the CBM Silicon Tracking System is a detector module comprising double-sided silicon microstrip sensors, ultra-thin read-out cables, and novel front-end electronics. Various types of modules will be employed in the detector system, differing in sensor size and cable length. We report on the development of the module components. The silicon sensors have a CBM specific layout. The performance of recent full-size prototypes will be presented. The cables are stacks of two low-mass signal layers, based on fine-pitch aluminum lines, and spacers. They bridge the distance between the sensors and the read-out electronics. The electronics comprises self-triggering ASICs. The integration of sensors, read-out cables and electronics into detector modules has been realized. We summarize the construction and performance of recent prototypes.
