Do a search for SA602 for example, click any of the suggested link and you get:

An HTTP error occurred while getting:
http://www.nxp.com/pip/SA602A.html
Details: "no status".

Useless and getting worse every day

What have they done to it ?

I went there to check it out and tried to type SA602 into the search box and
firstly, the 'select site' box dropped down interrupting what I was doing, so I
clicked on English, then tried entering something into the search box again and the
same thing happened again etc etc.

Furthermore, the search box briefly cleared then filled again with "type search
here".

So I went to 'advanced search' and the damn search box keeps filling up with "type
search here" when you click in it. This is with the Opera browser.

What a buch of MORONS. Someone deserves to be strung up !

UPDATE.

Somehow I managed to get sa602 in the search box through sheer bloody-mindedness I
think.

It did actually lead me to the correct page and it loaded ok too.

The sad thing is... they know it's horrid.

About six months ago, a couple of bright young NXP folks arrived at my
new-product developments in technology areas we're involved in.

The offerings sounded reasonably decent.

At the end of the presentation, I said "I'm concerned, though, about
everything I've been hearing about NXP recently. You're developing a
bad reputation. A lot of engineers on the Net say that it's difficult
or impossible to get any sort of technical information or support or
product samples from your company, unless one is already buying $10M of product per year. And, your website is one of the poorest in the trade." They looked at each other, and one of them replied "Well, let's be honest here. It *is* the worst one." Doesn't sound as if anything has changed lately. Yabutt, goto the Varitronix or Densitron websites, you have to register to get a datasheet, then they email it to you.......... martin T #### TheM Jan 1, 1970 0 Dave Platt said: At the end of the presentation, I said "I'm concerned, though, about everything I've been hearing about NXP recently.

I have to say samples are incredibly easy to get, at least so far (knock on the wood).

Not in firefox it didn't. I was not looking for pdf (you can find direct link in google),
I wanted to see the product page and current status (whether its still in full production etc).
I got there through products and down the tree eventually.

I also hate those java/javascript links when you want to open them in new window/tab
and of course its broken!

And of course the stupid popups every time you want to download a pdf.

LOL ! I didn't get that in Opera !

NXP need to employ a competent web designer.

Reason #3 to never design a Densitron part in again.

You must have missed that footnote that said "This site works best
with Windows 3.1 for Workgroups and Internet Explorer version 1.0"
Ha!!!

Seriously, I've never been a fan of Philips/NXP's site. Nor their
products.

Whoever believes that fancy flash grahpics and video are a proper
substitute for useability needs to have their head examined. This is
what happens when you marry graphic artists to website development /
computers.

It was better before takeover, but after it got really bad practically
over night. Its almost as if the new owner set crapping the website as their
primary mission.
