Magnonics meets micro-electro-mechanical systems
A new paradigm for communication technology and radio-frequency signal processing
In today’s fast-paced world, the significance of efficient RF signal processing cannot be overstated. It’s the beating heart of modern communication and radar technology, ensuring lightning-fast data transmission and pinpoint target detection. The M&MEMS project aims at combining the tunability of magnonic systems with the power efficiency and the agility of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), thus empowering a new generation of RF devices.
Nine partners from academia and industry combine their broad range of leading expertise in the fields of magnonics, MEMS, material science and RF electronics. Using simulations and experiments we will optimize the individual magnonic and MEMS building blocks and integrate these in a standalone PCB demonstrator.
Small, reconfigurable and efficent
By bringing together MEMS technology and permanent micromagnets, we plan to bring magnonics from the lab to real world application. M&MEMS chip, which have the capacity to disrupt the wafer-scale based hardware industries, will serve as the cornerstones of a new technology platform bringing spin-wave devices to a new level in terms of energy efficiency, agility, reconfigurability and footprint.
