Having high spatial resolution and good energy response the silicon drift detector (SDD) finds specific applications in experimental physics. The aims of this project are: simplified detector production and operation, improved total-to-sensitive-area ratio and stable working conditions. We have started a systematic study which includes all elements of the device, the silicon wafer, the various electrodes, an improved technology and VLSI front-end electronics. Several prototypes have been produced and we are progressively testing them. We summarize here our program of work and present the results from the first drift structures tested.
