Abstract Submission:
We are pleased to announce that as of today, the online abstract submission form is now available. In order to submit your abstract, please use this form.

The deadline for abstract submission is 16 March 2018

Technical Introduction of Components (TICs) :
In addition to the technical papers, the SPCD symposium will provide the opportunity for manufacturers to present themselves or to present their products through Technical Introduction of Components (TICs).

TICs are quick presentations (5 minutes) of one of the company products or a product family that is under-development or recently qualified or has been introduced to market. In order to submit your TIC, please use this form.

Aim of SPCD 
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
  • Fuses
  • Loads & Attenuators
  • Magnetics
  • Power dividers & Couplers
  • Relays & Switches
  • Resistors
