 most implementations are copied directly from the reference design
which typically comes straight from the SoC vendor or their closest

 from there, the parts *automatically* become popular and mass-volume
because nobody bothers changing them.

 so you would do well to copy parts from reference schematics: you'll
find that there are at least 5 designs on the rhombus-tech.net web
site and the parts lists and PDFs i've dropped into
http://hands.com/~lkcl/eoma in various places.
