We have constructed and tested a module, consisting of 64 (= 8×8) Hamamatsu MPPC S10362-11-100P silicon photomultipliers, for position sensitive detection of Cherenkov photons. Suitable light concentrators were produced to increase the efficiency and to improve the signal to noise ratio. The results of our measurements indicate that the performance of such a Cherenkov counter with aerogel radiator could meet the requirements of particle identification at the foreseen upgraded Belle detector.
