recent problems with TI's site? focus.ti.com

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if anyone else has been having problems with TI's site, (especially the "Focus.ti.com", which is where the datasheets, etc. come from) Or if this is a transient problem, I have had difficulty connecting with anything on the Focus side of the site, the "processors.wiki.ti.com" part works fine.

The problem comes up in firefox, chromium, and on my android phone.

Today I discovered that the problem is CAPITALIZATION in the URL.


For example:

http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/p ... G2553.html

Sorry! We couldn't find your page.

The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.


But, if you change the MSP430G2553 to msp430g2553, like this:

http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/p ... g2553.html

You get:

MSP430G2553 Status: ACTIVE

MSP430G2x53, MSP430G2x13 Mixed Signal Microcontroller

which is the 20 pin g2553, big boy of the ValueLine, which I just received as a free sample! WooHoo!


This capitalization issue seems to apply all over the Focus.ti part of the site.


Hope this helps!

Yep, I'm getting same results using Firefox here.


Thanks for the heads-up on the '2553 part. This is the one I've been lookin' for with USCI (UART) instead of just USI. Just ordered samples...


Cheerful regards, Mike

Good Tip!


Sounds like they're using Oracle App. Server (Java). We have a few sites still on this at work, and it's the only one I've seen that's case-sensitive. It's Tomcat-based, so Apache may be the same way, depending on configuration.
