Meta Counter[edit]

The {{meta counter}} template should be used in all the appropriate articles in order to maintain accurate live counter statistics.

{{meta counter|type=}}
Types Description
ac analog computer
dc digital computer
proc microprocessors
cont microcontrollers (proc+cont)

The counter ONLY goes in actual subject articles. For example if company X made Y Family of microprocessors made of A, B, and C. The counter {{meta counter|type=proc}} only goes in articles for A, B, and C. NOT in Y Family or X.
