Abstract: LHC will offer the opportunity of probing the mass scale of the electro-weaksymmetry breaking. Thus we expect to uncover direct manifestations of physicsbeyond the Standard Model, which will raise new questions that may beelucidated by precision measurements of beauty and charm decays. The LHCbexperiment is poised to pursue this ambitious program as soon as LHC turns on.An upgrade to enhance its physics sensitivity by at least one order ofmagnitude is critical to the completion of this study, as new physics effectsmay be subtle. A new vertex detector is a crucial element of this project.Important requirements are a radiation resistance up to a fluence of about10$^{16} n {eq} { m cm}^{-2}$, and a front end electronics capable ofdelivering its event information to the back end receiver boards synchronouslywith the beam interactions, at 40 MHz.
