A 100 TeV proton collider represents a core aspect of the Future Circular Collider (FCC) study.
An integral part of this project is the conceptual design of individual detector systems that can be
operated under luminosities up to 3×10^35 cm^−2 s^−1. One of the key limitations in the design arises from an increased number of pile-up events O(1000), making both particle tracking and identification of vertices extremely challenging. This talk reviews the general ideas that conceptually
drive the current tracker/vertex detector design for the FCC-hh (proton-proton). These include
material budget, detector granularity, pattern recognition, primary vertexing/pile-up mitigation
and occupancy/data rates. Finally, the limits of current tracker technologies and requirements on
their future progress, i.e. the dedicated R&D, will be briefly discussed.
