Hello design engineers,
As some people say "Time is money" and to reduce the time you usually spend looking for components, TI is developing a new set of Graphical Parametric Selection Tools (GPS). You may be already familiar with the Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) GPS tool (http://focus.ti.com/en/multimedia/flash/selection_tools/adc/adc.html), and it is now available a new one for Precision Amplifiers (http://focus.ti.com/en/multimedia/flash/selection_tools/precamp/precamp.html).
The experience has shown that by using these tools users can select the right parts in a shorter period of time and with fewer number of "clicks". Also, the Precision Amplifier GPS tool allows you to see the closest option available. Here is an example: your design needs a precision amplifier with GBW of 60MHz and Iq per channel lower than 10mA. By using the new Precision Amplifier GPS tool, you can see easily that OPA37 meets your design requirement.
We added a new functionality to the GPS tools based in the feedback we got from users like you: once you move your mouse over the parameter, the tool will display for few moments an explanation of that particular parameter. Here is an example:
Please, feel free to test our new selection tools and send us your feedback. We take them very seriously and you can help us to make these tools better. There is a little red box at the bottom of the tool that allows you to post your comments, questions and feedback for us.
We also have a survey that you can take, if you are using IE as browser. You can expect more tools coming out soon and we will keep you updated about the new ones.
Thanks for your time (and since "Time is money" I am done for today).
