A project has been in progress to provide information on radiation hardness properties of components to be used in the Front End Readout MIcrosystem (FERMI) collaboration. Neutron activation studies as well as neutron and γ radiation tolerance tests have been carried out on digital circuit components, prepared with different (partly radiation hardened) technologies, using 3.7 MeV average energy neutron and 60Co γ radiation. The test board and the irradiation conditions as well as the data acquisition and evaluation program are described.
