In view of the construction of novel and high-sensitive instrumentation for the emerging ISOL facilities new prototypes have being implemented and tested. The contribution focuses at the investigation of the detection efficiency of an innovative silicon-pad prototype, which is the key element for the construction of the TRACE array, pursued for the SPES facility based at the Legnaro National Laboratories (Italy). The inter-pad size has been estimated by using a commercial 100-MHz-14-bit CAEN digitizer for sampling the signals obtained by an alpha-source scan over the inter-pad region.
