The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a project of an electron-positron (e+e-) linear collider with the centre-of-mass energy of 200-500 GeV. Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors (MAPS) are one of the proposed silicon pixel detector concepts for the ILC vertex detector (VTX). Basic characteristics of two MAPS pixel matrices MIMOSA-5 (17 $\mu$m pixel pitch) and MIMOSA-18 (10 $\mu$m pixel pitch) are studied and compared (pedestals, noises, calibration of the ADC-to-electron conversion gain…
