The structural, electronic and magnetic properties of chalcopyrite magnetic semiconductors were discussed. First principles density-functional theory was used was used for investigations. The antiferromagnetic alignment was found to be most stable ordering for all the systems studied. It was found that for Zn- and Cd-rich systems, the total magnetic moments per Mn atom of the ferromagnetic phase is very close to the ideal value.
