We present the testbeam results of the first embedded tracking system prototype based on artificial retina algorithm, capable to reconstruct tracks in real time with a latency < 1\mus and with track parameter resolutions comparable with the offline results. The tracking system is based on silicon strip telescope and a custom DAQ board based on commercial FPGA, in which the artificial retina algorithm has been implemented. The prototype has been tested with 180GeV/c protons at a maximum trigger rate of 280kHz. The testbeam has been carried out at CERN SPS and the obtained results for track parameters show good agreement with offline results and with the simulated response of the system.
