My PCB design software comes with some libraries that include some common components, like chip resistors and capacitors. I have noticed, however, that the footprint land pattern for the 0805 resistor is not identical to the 0805 capacitor.
I then did some googling, and discovered multiple IPC standards that don't seem to quite agree with each other.
Is there a reason an 0805 resistor would have a different land pattern than an 0805 capacitor? Is there a "best standard"? IPC-7351, IPC-SM-782, or what?
