Paper Abstract

We summarize the on-orbit performance of the CCD detectors in the Suzaku X-ray Imaging Spectrometer during the first eight months of the mission. Gradual changes in energy scale, spectral resolution and other performance characteristics, mainly due to radiation exposure, are presented and compared with pre-launch expectations.
