I've been looking over some board designs and have been trying to identify the reasons behind using resistor networks over individual resistors. Some guesses I can think of are a reduced part-count and complexity. Does it also follow that a design using a resistor network is cheaper than one that uses individual resistors? Because of this, I would think one would try to maximize use of networks, but many of the designs use several individual resistors instead and I can't figure out why.
And a separate but relevant question: are capacitor networks in the same boat?
