Start with the news release RMS detector can be used in rugged environments from Linear Technology, which we summarised at the time by saying "Linear Technology has launched the LTC5582, a high-dynamic-range 10GHz RMS detector designed for use on remote radio units or outdoor units deployed on cellular towers.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Reference design for femtocell product designers from Lime Microsystems: "Lime Microsystems has introduced a Quick Start Kit and an optimised reference design for its multi-band multi-standard RF transceiver IC for femtocells, the LMS6002D.".

In January 2010, we covered the news from Linear Technology Corp - take a look at Upconverting mixer supports LTE wireless broadband which says: "The LT5578 active upconverting mixer delivers high-dynamic-range performance from 400MHz to 2.7GHz, supporting all of the allocated LTE (Long-Term Evolution) wireless-broadband services. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Linear Technology Corp, Linear modulator enhances basestation transmitters, as well as Aeroflex analysers have 30MHz digital demodulator from Aeroflex, and Analog's AD9122 DAC supports high data rates from Analog Devices.
