Looking for historical information regarding SMD R, C and L - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I am trying to find the dates when each subsequent smaller size of a particular component was first released. I want this information to plot the progress of component miniaturisation over time. In particular I need release dates for...
1206, 0805, 0603, 0402, 0201, 01005......
I would like these dates for each type of component (Resistor, Capacitor, Inductor) ideally from the same manufacturer for consistency.
Any suggestions where I might get this information?
