# ambiguity of [CCS] tag

There are two completely different microcontroller IDEs, both of whose names commonly abbreviate to, "CCS"

• Custom Computer Software (CCS) compiler and IDE for Microchip PIC microcontrollers.
• Code Composer Studio (CCS) made by TI for MSP430s, Stellaris, OMAP, etc

This may be causing confusion, especially for those who are new to the microcontroller field and are choosing a microcontroller family for the first time.

I propose that we keep associated with Custom Computer Software, and make a new or or for TI Code Composer Studio.

## Outcome

New tags and created (with wiki excerpts). Existing threads manually retagged (there were only 10 of them).

• I vote for ccstudio, because TI uses this abbreviation too. – m.Alin Oct 13 '12 at 20:58
• maybe make ccs the synonym for something less ambiguous? – endolith Oct 14 '12 at 1:40
• Constant Current Source? – W5VO Oct 15 '12 at 5:05
• @W5VO That too, although nobody have used [ccs] for Constant Current Source. Not yet. – Nick Alexeev Oct 15 '12 at 5:11
• Good work. Now we finally have a tag free for Computer Controlled Simulation or Constant Current Source. – Olin Lathrop Oct 17 '12 at 13:39
