compressed trie construction linear algorithm

I have a java code that has one method that constructs a compressed prefix tree in order to have less time complexity with search method.
The construct method takes O(n*n) which is ok until I heard that it might be possible to have the construction works in linear time.
Is that really possible?  Any resources and sample code is appreciated with points.
