Package diagram missing in various TI datasheets
« on: June 30, 2018, 06:21:24 pm »
I've been reading a few datasheets from TI, and it seems like they no longer want to keep the diagrams in the datasheet. Has anyone else encountered this?

Examples: LP5907older revision had the diagrams, latest hasn't.
Also, TPS7A10 has not, and there's no where to find the package diagram, besides to extract from ultra librarian library supplied by TI.

Are they trying to screw up their app engineers just like Maxim did before? Ay least with Maxim, with package code, you can download a PDF drawing. Not even that with TI!

never noticed it

I would hope that since this appears to be a brand new part (MARCH 2018 - REVISED JUNE 2018) the information is not there yet.

Side note: man, TI released incredibly useful LDOs and DCDCs recently, in the automotive catalog at least...
However, they keep making new ones and putting the old parts in obsolescence, i already had to change the part twice last year..
They appear to be new silicon revisions (same pinout or with minor differences in NC pins that now have a function, almost same specs) but it's still annoying.

I recently saw their youtube video on three level buck converters. brillant!

Yes it is annoying that they usually had usable information in their data sheets though sometimes (perhaps as you say a recent trend) they don't and then it can be hard or impossible to find what is missing.  I recently went through that with one of their package variants.

Anyway you can try these though sometimes I find things missing no matter where I look; their web site just gets less and less usable over the years, search especially.
