    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.

    Yabutt, goto the Varitronix or Densitron websites, you have to
    register to get a datasheet, then they email it to you..........

    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.

    I don't use the search web interface from the NXP site any more since they
    added all this annoying dynamic and scripted html, it's crap. Try Google:

    http://www.google.de/search?q=sa602+filetype:pdf+site:nxp.com

    First link is the datasheet to the SA602.

    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.

    Nah, the products are not that bad at all. If you can find them on the site :)
    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.
