Place of event


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. European Passive Components Institute is a proud partner to the ESA SPCD 2018 event.

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 & Interconections
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
