The Belle II experiment is a B-factory which is being built at the asymmetric electron-positron collider SuperKEKB in Japan. The experiment aims at measuring the differences between matter and anti-matter in the B and D meson decays. The 2-layer active pixel detector based on the novel DEPFET technology is an innermost detector in the experiment and a part of the vertex detector. The pixel detector provides excellent spacial resolution of around 10 um and low material budget of 0.19% X0/layer. Furthermore, the energy loss in the detector will be used for the characterization of the incident particles. The working principle of the detector as well as the current development status will be presented in the talk.
