A new beam telescope, Lycoris, is currently being installed as an improvement for the DESY test beam infrastructure within the EU Horizon2020 AIDA-2020 project. Lycoris telescope is designed to cover a large area for providing a reference momentum measurement to beam users in an 1 T solenoid magnet. It consists of six layers of the 10×10 cm2 surface, 25 μm(50 μm) sensor(readout) pitch, single-sided silicon strip sensor, giving a spatial resolution better than 10 μm along the bending direction. The micro-strip sensor is designed for the SiD tracker, readout by two bump-bonded, KPiX ASICs, which digitizes and serializes signals from all connected strips, then sends out via one single wirebonded data trace. This hybrid-less arrangement enbales Lycoris to accomodate 3 layers of the hybrid-less SiD sensor in 3.2 cm space. The presentation will first introduce the telescope with its components, then characterization results of the sensor modules will be given based on the beam tests in August and September 2018. At the end, the first beam test results of the Lycoris telescope prototype will be shown with a comparison to the simulation.
