You're right. Trying to classify chips like this is too
restrictive. Well, as soon as it seems not possible to create a
generic way to classify, maybe a single dir 'chips/' would be the good
way... Good news, that is what we have, even if the name of the
directory is 'frontend'...
Maybe a README file in the frontend/ dir with a simple array
Chip name/capacities would be sufficient ???
