The Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is being constructed as a scientific satellite to observe high energy cosmic rays in space. As a crucial detector of DAMPE, the EGO calorimeter consists of 1848 PMT dynode signals which bring difficulties in front-end electronics on the space-limited and power-limited satellite platform. To overcome the challenge, a low-noise, low-power and high-integration ASIC chip, named VA32IADR14.2, is taken into account. In order to evaluate the radiation tolerance of the chip in space radiation environment, both single event effect (SEE) and total ionizing dose (TID) tests were performed. The SEE test result shows that the effective linear energy transfer (LET) threshold of single event latch-up (SEL) of the chip is around 23.0 MeV-cm(2)/mg, which is relatively sensitive, thus protection methods must be taken in the electronics design. The TID test result shows that the TID performance of the chip is higher than 25 Krad(Si), which satisfies the design specification.
