CCIR technology allowed multiple automatons to be controlled by large central computers rather than a large number of miniaturized droid brains.

The need for only minimal internal computers cut the construction cost for such droids although the cost of programmable crystals proved high until Loronar began enslaving Tsils from Nam Chorios in order to accomplish the instant communication needed.
