In the year 2022 an upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is planned to increase the luminosity such that an integrated luminosity of L-int similar to 3000 fb(-1) can be accumulated by 2030 . The radiation damage of the present inner tracker at this date and the high track density of the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) require an upgrade of the inner tracker of the ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS) experiment. A new integration concept will be used: the readout electronics is directly glued on the strip surface of the silicon sensors and the sensors are glued to a support structure. For the barrel region this structure is referred to as a Stave and for the end-cap region it is referred to as a Petal. For tests a smaller version, the Petalet, will be build with two design concepts. In this article the construction method is explained and first hybrid test results for one Petalet sensor are presented.
