Space Passive Component Days 2018

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 8:00 am / Friday, October 12, 2018 - 5:00 pm CEST

Space Passive Days

Passive Components represent more than 80% of the EEE parts used in spacecraft. Therefore, they represent a major concern for space applications. In recent years, the development of Passive Components has been driven by reliability, performances, new functionalities, mass and volume saving and cost reduction.

Space Passive Component Days (SPCD) international Symposium

The SPCD international Symposium is the premier technical conference dedicated to Passive components for space applications. It is an exceptional venue to learn more about the latest advances in this field and meet recognized experts from industry, academia and agencies.

Aim of the SPCD symposium is to promote the discussion of recent developments and trends and to encourage the exchange of technical expertise and information covering a broad range of EEE passive components for space applications:

Capacitors & Supercapacitors

Circulators & Isolators

Cable assemblies & Harnesses

Connectors & Interconnections

Crystals & Oscillators


Loads & Attenuators


Power dividers & Couplers

Relays & Switches


RF switches & Phase shifters

SAW Devices (SAW Filters, etc.)

Thermal Sensors & Heaters

The symposium consists of both invited and submitted papers covering the following topics :

  • Application, Trends and Needs
  • Evaluation & Qualification
  • Lessons Learned and In-flight Experiences
  • Materials and Processes
  • New Developments
  • Normative System & Standards
  • Procurement, Distribution
  • Technology Roadmaps
  • Test, Reliability and Evaluation for space
