Soon after getting my pi I started tinkering with the gpio. After buying a breadboard, wires, switches, cobbler, etc., I realized that a bunch of the tutorials I was following kept asking for resistors and capacitors. I see adafruit has two products with what appear to be a good bundle of resistors and capacitors:
I did my due diligence and hit wikipedia to try and figure out the difference:
0603 (1608 metric): 1.6 mm × 0.8 mm (0.063 in × 0.031 in). Typical power rating for resistors = 0.1 watt
0805 (2012 metric): 2.0 mm × 1.25 mm (0.079 in × 0.049 in). Typical power rating for resistors = 0.125 watt
It appears that the 0805 is bigger and has a higher power rating.
The breadboard I am using is one I purchased here:
With all that out of the way, should I get the 0603 or 0805 capacitor and resistor book?
