DCS family is a cylindrical keycap profile family offered by Signature Plastics. DCS profile is very similar to Cherry profile. "DCS" denotes DIN standard height, cylindrical touch area, and sculptured keycap profile. Prior to DCS, there was DSS (DIN standard, spherical, sculptured), which was not popular and was retired. DSS was followed by sculptured SA, then DSA, then DCS.[1]

This family resembles the modern standard keycaps which came up during the early 1980s.
