SMT package to feeder size chart| 3 November, 2008
Oddly enough, I find it more often than not that the supply type is not mentioned in the data sheets.
And if the original author was saying 0603 in a metric package, then it would be in 8x2 tape. Even in the US, some companies use the metric names for package sizes. One of the companies we build boards for call them by their metric names.
Anyways, back to the original question: you can download the catalogs from Practical Components and Topline Components and they would indicate the tape size on all the basic package types for most common SMT packages.
