When designing a circuit schematic in Kicad, does it matter what footprint or package is listed in the part name?
This is similar to this question, but I'm more confused about the naming scheme shown in Kicad's part selector in the schematic editor. As I understand Kicad's workflow, you design the circuit first and then specify footprints later when designing the pcb.
I want to place a n-channel mosfet, and I know the physical part needs to be in the 3-pin DPAK package size. When I go to select a mosfet in the schematic view, Kicad's part selector lists a lot of mosfets. Some specify no package, but a lot specify explicit packages like "SO-8" or "SOT-143". I don't see any listing "DPAK". Is DPAK not supported, or does the package listed in the parts selector not matter, and I can select the footprint later when designing the PCB?
