The silicon pixel vertex detector is a key element of the BTeV spectrometer. Sensors bump bonded to prototype front-end devices were tested in a high-energy pion beam at Fermilab. The spatial resolution and occupancies as a function of the pion incident angle were measured for various sensor-readout combinations. The data are compared with predictions from our Monte Carlo simulation and very good agreement is found.
