We have developed HypTPC consists of TPC and the trigger hodoscope for the J-PARC hadron experiments. The TPC Hodoscope has large scintillators of 80 $$times$$ 7 $$times$$ 1 cm$$^3$$ to cover the TPC. Especially, we have developed a readout circuit for multiple MPPCs to detect photons generated over a large area of the scintillator. A general methods of applying voltage to multiple MPPCs are parallel and series connections. In the case of parallel connections, a signal has a long tail due to the large sensor capacitance. MEG collaboration used four MPPC segments as a serial connection. However, in the case of a series connection, the requiring bias voltage is very high, and the gain is low. To avoid this problem, we have developed a new individual biasing method with a summing amplifier for stable multiple MPPC readouts. We also made prototype detectors and performed a cosmic-ray test. Brief descriptions of our prototypes and preliminary results of the cosmic-ray test are presented in this article.
