# Discussion: IC specific tags

This was quickly revised by a suggested edit to remove that tag, and to stick with suitable generics.

I had sympathy with that view so approved the edit... in my view, we're not Electronics.SE so are unlikely to have too may questions relating to any specific IC, never mind enough to justify having individual tags. And in the unlikely event that a single IC gains critical mass, then we can always introduce that tag later.

But now I'm having second thoughts... so I'd like to sound out the group so we can establish a general policy.

1. IC specific tags are OK for all ICs
2. IC specific tags are OK for common ICs
3. IC specific tags are not OK
4. Something else

Discuss...

• Agree that classes of IC are OK (that's what I meant with suitable generics) although I'd question even 78xx - rather voltage-regulators or similar – Andrew Dec 23 '12 at 20:18
