The FAZIA detector is a new-generation modular detector array for heavy-ion collisions designed for intermediate energies . The basic detection module consists of two transmission-mounted silicon detectors (300 um and 500um) followed by a CsI(Tl) scintillator, grouped in order to compose 4x4 single telescopes. Significant improvements in ΔE-E and pulse-shape techniques were obtained by controlling the doping homogeneity and the cutting angles of silicon and by putting severe constraints on thickness uniformity. Purposely designed digital electronics contributed to identification quality which is very good. The general characteristics and some possible couplings of the FAZIA telescopes with gas detectors will be discussed in the talk in the perspective also of low energy applications.
