Rereading your comment a few times, I realize this is what you already said. Sorry. : )

@Etmax: Actually "Click here" is in a contrasting color; it is a very dark blue that changes to a much lighter blue when the mouse cursor hovers over it. A poor color choice to be sure, but it is not black.

Etmax: Check out TI's TMP112 & TMP102. They are almost as small and low power as the TMP103. SOT-563 package.

I do agree it says "click here" :-) , but I have to read so much daily that I speed read, so I really appreciate a well formatted document that "draws" your eyes to relevant detail. Doesn't anyone publish or at least read style guides anymore??

It does actually say, "click here" - so that's the place to click! However, I agree that links really should be made to stand out - at the moment, it looks like they've made the all-too-common mistake of writing "click here" and then forgetting to actually make it clickable!

This is a great product, and I would consider it as a standard part for any design that needs a temperature sensor if it weren't for the fact that it only came in a CSP package. PLEASE TI, release it in a SOT23-4 or SOT23-5 package for that multitude of applications that won't be loaded on a bleeding edge SMT line. I've worked for a number of companies that won't use BGA or CSP packages because they just can't get reliable manufacturing services for them.

This is written to the person who formatted this article for web viewing. In times gone by it has been common place to make a hyperlink stand out from surrounding text so people know what the hell to press on. I don't care how you do it, whether it be making it blue with an underline or simply a dark red or orange per a number of other links on this page, but to make it a colour that on this grey background is barely distinguishable from the black used in the body text is poor design. At least put an underline or make it bold so we know where to click, not having to move the mouse pointer over every word trying to find the Easter eggs.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
