And here the direct link to the news-bit:
Lime's FPRF is nothing more than an digital radio RX/TX solution.
Ie, DAC + I/Q Modulator + VCO and LNA + I/Q Demodulator + ADC + VCO
in a single package. They are nice for what they do. Simplify a lot
of circuit design (though i must say that i like the AD9361 better).
The "article" says very little on what they are even planing to do,
much less on what they are going to do.
It is upon moral qualities that a society is ultimately founded. All
the prosperity and technological sophistication in the world is of no
use without that foundation.
