New farnell website

Discussion in 'Electronic Design' started by martin griffith, Apr 10, 2007.

  1. It seems to be a less bad, still wont fit into a screen without a
    scroll bar at the bottom (firefox)

    They have a feedback link to ask what "we" think and I was thinking of
    asking for "point us to an error on product description", so a bit
    wiki like.

    Or should I get out more?

    Don't get your hopes up that anyone will care, or even read. The art of
    efficient web site design has been lost, for the most part. No hay mucha
    esperanza, at least not in corporate web sites :-(

    but

    I was looking for some adjustable shunty type regulators on Linear,
    and found their search engine a bit of a mess, so I shot off a comment
    to Linear, I had a reply in a day or so, from Mistress Web.

    It's not all bad:)

    Linear's cool

    Martin, what's the screen resolution?

    Opera at 1400*1050 OK (brand spanking new 20" LCD!)
    Opera at 1024*768 OK.
    Opera at 800*600 and scroll appears.
    So, Opera and anything above 800*600 is no scrollbar.

    sounds good, but I'm pretty happy with firefox, and I wont change just
    for one website, but I'll try another PC tomorrow, to see if there is
    a difference

    zzz time, in garlic land

    I used it in anger today, it is better than the old one and the old one was
    a mile better than RS Components java script link ridden crap.

    They first put up the new site a couple of weeks ago over the weekend. Was
    down on Saturday, new site Sunday, back to old site Monday - guess they had
    problems lol.

    I was going to suggest something similar but haven't got around to it. They
    occasionally have errors in the parametric data such as the wrong GBP for
    an op-amp. I was planning to suggest a simple feedback option for customers
    to point out errors in the parametric data.
    They have been a few occasions when I've wondered why a particluar
    component wsn't showing up in the parametric search and it's been because
    the data was wrong. One version of the AD8045 is currently listed as 1MHz
    GBP when it should be 1GHz.
    I'm using 1024*768 in Win2k with Firefox 2 and it looks fine. Is your text
    size in Firefox set to larger than standard? If I increase the text size by
    two steps I get the horizontal scroll bar.

    Farnell's site was always better than most sites of other suppliers and
    manufacturers but the new version is even better. The speed increase is
    quite noticable.
     
  10. well, we do spec the bits we need, so if they cant get their nibbles
    organised....

    The RS site is one of the worst I've used, the javascript links make it
    extremely inflexible. I was recently trying to find out what range of high
    (highish) voltage op-amps were readily available for a one-off test
    circuit, I tried the RS site and looked at the the supply voltage options
    (apologies for posting all the below, I'm just stunnned at how ridiculous
    it is):

    Numbers in [] indicate number of op-amps in that section and each link has
    to be followed individually. I just closed the page and decided to stick
    with what I'd found at Farnell I could have spent an hour on the RS site
    and still not found anything useful.

    I placed an online order with another supplier today, the price breaks for
    one part were

    1+ 10+ 100+ 500+
    £1.00 £1.40 £1.50 £0.90

    Glad I needed less than 10.

    1280*1024 here still isn't wide enough.

    1360 wide fixes it but has the wrong aspect ratio ( *768) . I'm not keen on
    1600*1200.

    I has a scroll bar with Opera @ 1280*1024 here.

    It depends on the page results IIRC.

  16. Tried it on my video editing PC, with a dual head ATI card at
    1024*768, and did a search for LM741. Still get a scroll bar.
