As part of the High Luminosity LHC upgrade (HL-LHC), a new Inner Tracking Detector (ITK) will be constructed for the ATLAS experiment, using silicon pixel and micro-strip technology. A back-up prototype development for the micro-strip barrel detector of the ITK envisages double-sided modules of typically 10x10 cm2 assembled on a stiff but low material local support to form a ‘super-module’ of up to 16 modules. Following the successful completion of component demonstrators and prototype elements, the feasibility of the super-module concept has been largely demonstrated and the project using ABC250 front-end chips is now being concluded. In this summary, the major design specifications are confronted with the principal electrical and mechanical prototype results.
