I might have some background information on their name which you might find interesting: The founder of Hittite, Yalcin Ayasli, is Turkish. The Hittites are the (ancient) ancestors of the Turks. He chose the name because it symbolizes strength to the modern Turkish people, or so I've been told. There is a link on their web site (see below) which will show that the origins of the Hittite company were based on the "strength" in their IC design expertise in the emerging GaAs MMIC industry when they began back in the mid-1980's. Before the company became a serious player in the wireless IC arena in the mid-1990's, they published quite often, as most technology companies do, and a list of those papers (and patents) is located on this link. Needless to say, the wireless industry being so competitive, they keep their disclosures very close-to-the-vest these days. Hope you found this useful.
