    Hello all,

    Anyone else hving trouble finding links to datasheets on the TI web
    site?

    I was just checking whether I had the latest rev of a datasheet (DSP
    '5509A) before starting the design work around it.

    I can find the usual looking product page but there is no link to the
    datasheet! This is new - there certainly used to be. Would have only
    been a few days ago I was downloading data (maybe a week or so.)

    Or am I just missing the obvious link somewhere?

  2. I can't see it (or find it in the page source). Is this the file you
    need?

    Best regards,

    Right, but to help yourself:
    In the keyword search you give in "datasheet", then comes a page with links
    to all the pdf-files and you pick the right one

    Thanks Spehro and Ben for the links.

    It is not so much that I couldn't find the info by a search (but I did
    *very* briefly and was not as successful as Ben).

    I guess I am shaking my head at the change, especially so as the TI
    site was a pretty easy site to use in general.

    TI have either stuffed up a web site update or there is some silly
    thinking happening. If it hard to find datasheets I will be less
    likely to design in TI parts - of course you have to do the design
    according to your particular constraints but if info is hard to get
    when an adequate part os found from an easier to use site would you
    hasle through a harder to use site?

    I think I will assume the former. I have emailed TI asking what has
    happened.

    Thanks all.

    Ian
