[ Edited ]

I have no idea how you manage to this, but there is, in the current search waaay too much weight on the subject and waaaay too little weight on "where to use"  e.g. the first entry on a search on efm8bb is "

C8051F850 I2C Example


very much related to efm8bb


also the ability to specify WHAT would be helpful e.g. a window for the search showing datasheet/reference manual




I think more could be in the above list, but am going blank right now.


one absolute fact re the current state of affairs: if you need a datasheet forget about searching SILabs, search at DigiKey


also while the division 

Analog Intensive

General Purpose

Ultra-Low Power



may make sense to some it is basically wrong for most designs, the best choice chip could be in any of the groups.
