We report the results of a beam test at KEK using double-sided AC-coupled silicon microstrip detectors with binary readout, i.e., a readout where the signals are discriminated in the front-end electronics and only the hit location as kept. For strip pitch between 50μ and 200μ, we determine the efficiency and the noise background as function of threshold setting. This allows us to reconstruct the Landau pulse height spectrum and determine the signal/noise ratio. In addition, the threshold/noise ratio necessary for operation with low occupancy is determined
