SMT cap selection


#1

Getting ready to do some SMT board designs. What brand/specs on ceramic caps do you guys use for general purpose decoupling? Digikey has a bewildering array of choices so I would like to know whats the best bang for the buck in 0805 sizes. Thinking C0G/NP0 but I’m not sure what tolerances are appropriate for decoupling.
