This authoritative first volume provides a solid understanding of modern spacecraft classification, failure, and electrical component requirements. This book focuses on the study of modern spacecraft, including their classification, packaging and protection, design versions, launch failure and accident analysis, and the main requirements of electronic components used. Readers find comprehensive coverage of the design and development of individual components as well as systems, their packaging, and how to make them last in space. This is a useful resource for military and civil applications.


Specific topics include:

  • The manufacturing of electronics for space;
  • The main physical mechanisms of the impact of destabilizing factors of outer space, including various kinds of radiation, high-energy galactic icons, and particles of cosmic dust;
  • The design of advanced space-grade microelectronic products such as memory microcircuits, microprocessors, interface and logic of microcircuits and power control microcircuits;
  • Facts and features about the “space race” that have not been available until now.

Modern Spacecrafts; Launch Vehicle and Spacecraft Failures and Accidents; Microwave Electronics For Space and Military Applications; Microelectronic Element Base of Rocket and Space Technology; Process Design Kits (PDK)– Structure and Specific Uses in the Development of Products with Submicron Design Rules.

Review by: M.V. Kovalchuk, Kurchatov Institute - June 10, 2017

Nowadays we witness the thriving development of the convergence process (merger, unification, inter-permeation) of a number of science disciplines, earlier advancing independently of each other. A vivid example can be seen in the telecommunications and information-communications technologies and systems on their basis emerged about ten years past in the result of convergence of two entirely diverse science directions – informatics and electrical communications. At present we are quite ready to amalgamate the existent technologies of microelectronics with the explored (structures of live nature) by means of convergence of nano-, bio-, info- and other spheres of knowledge.


The exact same phenomenon is also in evidence in the sphere of the space explorations, the objective manifestation of which is the arrival of this book, embracing within the span of three volumes the previously virtually distant science disciplines – technologies of the micro- and nano- electronics, microwave engineering, design development of the on-board electronic systems of space vehicles, methods for reliability enhancement and power saving on the spacecraft, physical influence mechanisms on the space vehicles and the on-board electronics by the high energy micro-particles, methods for safeguarding from the similar effects, technologies and materials for protection from the space radiation and electromagnetic irradiations and a great deal more. I strongly believe, that the book Space Microelectronics will go straight to the world contemporary literature of technical science.

Review by: Yu. Makarov, Roskosmos Federal Space Agency - June 1, 2017
The specialists and senior members of the divisions of the Federal Space Agency of the Russian Federation "Roskosmos" are well cognizant of and resort in their practical activities to the Russian language edition of the book by A. I. Belous, V. A. Solodukha, S. V. Shvedov Space Electronics. World print by the Artech House of the English language version of the book Space Microelectronics in three volumes, substantially renewed and expanded with the recent materials, will certainly evoke the interest of the English language and Russian specialists and managers in the space industry on a wider scale.
Review by: V.A. Labunov, Coordination Center for the Research Technical Programs of the European Union - June 1, 2017

Reading this book was a pleasure, the title being of a full compliance with the contents. In my estimation, its merits can be attributed to inclusion of the extra materials on the causes of failures and accidents of rockets and satellites, noteworthy facts from the history of the space engineering development. I see it as the first ever fundamental work in the sphere of the space microelectronics, encompassing both the odd literature instances on the specific aspects of the space microelectronics and the vast personal experience of the authors, the recognized authorities in this sphere. By comparison with the Russian language edition the materials are superior structured, updated and more comprehensive. I am positive, that this book will be amid the contemporary selection of works of the technical science at a proper place.
