The signal-to-noise performance of DC-coupled single-sided silicon strip detectors (SSSD) of our own design and front-end readout electronics is presented. Good separation of the signal from the noise is essential for the successful accomplishment of their intended functions. For the tracking of charged particles, a good signal-to-noise ratio (>10) is required. For X-ray applications, much better signal-to-noise performance is desirable because of less energy being deposited by an incident photon. We report a signal-to-noise ratio of the fabricated DC-coupled SSSD with electronics for the 45-MeV proton beam from the MC-50 cyclotron at the Korea Institute of Radiological and Medical Science (KIRAMS) in Seoul, Korea.
