Is there a rationale for the tag?

I don't see how that's a sensible category for engineering questions – if you want to talk about something like , there's a tag for that, and it really doesn't matter who produces the buck converter controller you have a question about, does it?

Didn't want to this "tag-cleanup" right away, because maybe I'm just missing something.

    \$\begingroup\$ There is also a "st" tag, a "nxp" tag, a "renesas" tag, and you can probably go on... I don't have any strong feelings whether it makes sense or not, but we should probably apply the same rationale for all of those tags. \$\endgroup\$ – dim Sep 14 at 10:44

    \$\begingroup\$ TI has such a broad product range that the tag has little meaning, unlike the other companies mentioned in comment. \$\endgroup\$ – Scott Seidman Sep 16 at 11:49

This is the sort of case where we should be able to ban a meaningless tag from future use, but where retroactively touching questions to remove it would create unjustified churn cluttering up the main page.
