STM CORTEX M3

Started by justme February 25, 2011
Does anyone else find that STMs web site on Cortex M3 beyond abysmal?
There are major problems with it and I even emailed them asking for
some directions on navigating their site ( 3 times) and I have yet to
receive a response.  

I would appreciate any input about this.

Thank you.

Recently they changed it all over to flash and now it is absolutely appalling. -- John Devereux

My input is that I thought "to hell with that" and went and bought a Atmel board instead. If you look around at various web forums, you will see a lot of complaints about the new website.

I didn't think it could be THAT bad. I was wrong. By the way, what browser should I use? It doesn't work with FireFox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. RK

Just on the CM3? I now find the entire STM site so entirely unusable that I'm buying other people's parts just to avoid the horrors of having to dig them for datasheets. -- Rob Gaddi, Highland Technology Email address is currently out of order

You could search it on Digikey, they have links to the datasheets. Sometimes it helps trying to write to the CEO about bad web design. Usually they don't know how many orders they lose because of such a website, maybe because the presentation of the designer looks great, but they didn't try to use it as an engineer. Last year the website was usable, but now the Flash animation is of the size of a postage stamp on my widescreen display (you can see 5 lines of a product family in a scrollable table, and more than half of the screen is empty) and the usual web navigation, like open a link in another window, doesn't work and in Linux it doesn't work at all (Opera can show the Flash animation). I wonder why they waste money on Flash animations for engineers, instead of using it for a functional website like Digikey. But of course, STM microcontrollers and other products are nice. -- Frank Buss, http://www.frank-buss.de piano and more: http://www.youtube.com/user/frankbuss

Too many managers with too little to do. -a

You need Flash installed to use the ST website now which is something I refuse to install for just one website as I do not need it for the rest of my online activities. As well as the fact I've found Flash based websites to be bloated and slow, especially when you try browsing them from a mobile internet connection which I do a good portion of the time, I also refuse to open my machines to a major source of malware (given Flash's security history). BTW, someone mentioned when I posted about this new website a month or two ago that Google don't index Flash based websites. I wonder if ST have considered that...

Fellows, thank you very much for the information about STM's terrible
website.  I will make a compilation of the comments here sans names/id
and get it to the C.E.O. and a few others.  If anyone already knows
his/her email, please pass it along.

All this time I thought that maybe that I was dumber than I already
knew because I was getting nowhere.

Thanks.

Joe
