I have these two resistors in my schematic, that i want to find footprints for:
Body dimensions = 2.5 x 6.8mm AND Leads dimensions = 0.6 x 28mm (like this one: https://www.acdcshop.gr/resistormetalfilmtht2k06w121625x68mm50ppmc-p-28928.html 1)
Body dimensions = 1.9 x 3.7mm AND Leads dimensions = 0.45 x 28mm (like this one: https://www.acdcshop.gr/resistormetalfilmtht100komega04wplusmn1oslash19x37mm50ppmdeg-p-15162.html)
i understand that the
(Body dimensions = 2.5 x 6.8mm) part is useless. The only info left is
(Leads dimensions = 0.6 x 28mm).
I opened the datasheet but this info is not clear to me since i can bend the leads wherever i want.
Also, do i care about the diameter of the leads
There is no clear P value (in KiCAD's terms) in order to select one.
I opened up the footprint library and there were a ton of THT axial horizontal resistors, but each carried a different prefix like
DIN0309, DIN0411 etc. What do these mean and how to select one?
