This study is aimed at exploring the details of various aspects of building long microstrip ladders for future particle physics collider experiments. Several configurations of silicon microstrip detectors (up to 64 cm in length) and two GaAs detectors were constructed and beam tested using the Viking front end chip and a PC-based data acquisition system allowing easy comparison and understanding of the results. Results on cluster charge, signal-to-noise, resolutions, and efficiencies for different configurations are presented and compared here.
