So I need design a prototype PCB circuit and need to decide on using what kind of surface mount resistors and capacitors to use. But looking at digikey, there are so many types with many variations in size, manufacturers, etc.!
Since there is not really any strict requirements for my project, I'm assuming most of them would work fine. Cost and precision is not a huge issue for my case.
But what are some deciding factor on choosing which size/packaging/manufacturers to use?
