Someone needs to clean house in the TI division that supports their website.
The site is slow and unwieldy as well as inaccurate. For example, the curent version of the Amplifier Parametric Selection Guide has the "equal to or greater than" symbols backwards. Who would want to select an op amp with greater than X bias current?
Far too many devices have no TINA symbols or macromodels and the op amp pinout is not consistent-- not all op amp symbols have the power pins in the same place; there is no excuse for this.

Thank you for your feedback. We have forwarded your post on to the appropriate teams over each of the areas and will hopefully have some specific responses for you soon.

Thanks for your post. We are revising our selection tool for all families to make sure the sliders are correct and the data is accurate. Also we are implementing code improvements to make the selection faster.
That would be a welcome change if it does get inplimented. Might I suggest that you have a meeting with a group of Analog Applications Engineers and take their recommendations as Gospel. You have to remember that the goal of the selection guide is to help a customer find the appropriate device for his application-- quickly and easily. Put the most important parameters in the table and leave out the clutter. Make it clear when you are listing a MIN or MAX value vs a TYPICAL.
The op amp and instrumentation amplifier selection guide has been an embarrassment for years-- it is time to get it revised to something useful-- the same goes for the whole TI website.
