Started in September 2010, the MACALO FP7 project ended after 3 years with excellent results.
MACALO had two main deliverables, one in software and one in hardware which form the core business of the two European high-tech companies in the consortium.
The two objectives of this exploratory, academic oriented project have been met:
The first objective was to produce a working prototype of a computer simulation tool to help optimise integrated magneto electronic device design parameters at the nanoscale.
The second objective was to design and prototype nano-scale magneto electronic RF oscillators with different combinations of desirable properties, optimizable subsequently (through further company research) for specific applications in wireless communication devices.
