High Reliability is fundamental for space missions. Cost reduction with high reliability and quality plays an important role in the development of the space market. Selected commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) electronics are tested and qualified by SPECTRUM and offer a new perspective in the space technology. The so called Space-COTS allow SMEs and big players to redesign the evolution of the space field by introducing the best and modern technology performance in space. Space hardware industries can access a variety of parts from several manufacturers and provide a big design flexibility.

Quality, Reliability and Testing

  • Best pre-selected COTS
  • Qualification tests based on ESA Standards
  • Qualification tests by request (e.g. customized requirements or other standards such as MIL)
  • Defined radiation hardness levels
  • Screening test by request
  • Complementary datasheet with space specifications

Variety of Products
