An overview of the ATLAS and CMS silicon trackers is presented. The silicon tracker is a key element for the discovery potential of the ATLAS and CMS detectors at LHC. The performances of the two systems, which are designed to operate with a 40 MHz bunch crossing frequency in a high particle flux density and hard radiation environment, are discussed.
