This paper describes measurements made using counters composed of a small (3 by 3 by 0.5 cm3) scintillation tile coupled to a Multi-Photon Pixel Counter (MPPC) produced by Hamamatsu and exposed to an electron beam at the Beam Test Facility in Frascati. We show our first results for charge spectra and efficiency, and a very preliminary measurement of device linearity.
