CAMEX64 preamplifiers, developed at the MPI-Munich for use in the readout of silicon strip detectors, have been exposed to well-measured doses of monochromatic γ-rays from the Cornell high energy synchrotron source (CHESS) and measurements of the resulting radiation damage have been made. Silicon strip detectors with their associated CAMEXes will be installed close to the interaction region in the CLEO-II experiment at Cornell University, where they will be exposed to both charged particle and photon fluences. Powered and unpowered CAMEXes were irradiated and after each exposure measurements of pedestals, gains, coherent and incoherent noise were made, until the devices could no longer be read out. Results are quoted for noise and gain degradation as a function of dose.
