I was reading CubeSat 101 (https://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/atoms/files/nasa_csli_cubesat_101_508.pdf) wondering if the electronics components needed to be special for space but it says nothing about the actual parts that make up the electronics. I've run into "radiation hardened" FPGAs in the past and I assumed they were for space application but I was just guessing. My question is for regular stuff like resistors, caps (maybe not electrolytic, I assume they'll vent) and MCUs. Like ... can I use a PIC24 or PIC16/18 without issues or are there special MCUs for space applications?
EDIT: I think this post answers the MCU part of my question: (space-grade microcontrollers)
What about the resistors, ceramic caps, inductors, etc? Do all active components (MCU, transistors, etc) have to be special?
