About RF Cafe

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Notes

Missing SP6T Switch Symbol.

The original Switches .vss file is missing the SP6T switch. Please send me an e-mail if you want a replacement file.

Where to store files?

I recommend creating a new folder titled "RF Electronics Stencils" and then unzipping the files into it. For versions of Windows through Win10, the path will typically look like this:

.\Documents\My Shapes\RF Electronics Stencils\

If you are using Visio™ 2013 or later, you might want to re-save the files in the .vssx and .vsdx XML format since they are typically much smaller.

Page templates

I recommend that you begin by using one of the included Page Template files for developing your diagram. Some basic information is on the "Hints & Tips" page to help you get started. Standard A-, B-, and C-size drawing templates (.vsd files) are provided that come with a Page Scale preset to play well with the supplied stencil objects. You may, of course, change the page scale to whatever is most convenient for you. If large changes are made, you might need to re-size text and line widths.

Switches

Switch pointer positioning instructions - RF CafeThe position selection pointer has its rotation axis set on the common "C" terminal so the pointer can easily be made to contact any of the switch positions.

Component parameters

Rather than attach an electrical parameter set to each stencil, a separate generic stencil is provided that can be added to shapes and modified as needed. You can of course add your own text objects to the drawing, just as you can add any other type of Visio built-in objects. 

XML file format

If you are using Visio™ 2013 or later, you might want to re-save the files in the .vssx and .vsdx XML format since it is typically much smaller.

Visio 2016 Security Settings for "RF Stencils for Visio" - RF CafeSecurity warning?

Visio 2013 and beyond requires additional Security settings to open the Stencils.

RF Stencils for Visio Page Scale Setup - RF CafeShapes not aligning to grid?

Components are drawn to align to a grid set up for: Page Setup -> Drawing Scale -> Architectural Scale of 1" = 1' 0".

Set colors to "No Theme" - RF CafeColors not appearing properly?

Make certain that the Color Themes are set to "No Theme"

RF & Electronics Stencils for Visio r4 Example Diagram - RF CafeThis set of more than 1,0000 uniquely designed RF & Electronics Stencils for Visio™ were built in Visio™ 2007 and tested in 2019. They use the .vss and .vsd file formats, which is compatible with Visio™ 2003 up through the most current version.

Every symbol has been built to fit proportionally on the included A-, B-, and C-size drawing page templates (or use your own page if preferred). Components are provided for system block diagrams, conceptual drawings, schematics, test equipment, racks (EIA 19", ETSI 21"), and more.

Test equipment and racks are built at a 1:1 scale so that measurements can be made directly using Visio built-in dimensioning objects. Page templates are provided with a preset scale (changeable) for a good presentation that can incorporate all provided symbols. A look through the stencil sets below testifies to the claim of completeness, and a consistent appearance will assure a premium quality presentation. These symbols took many hundreds of hours to create, so the minimal cost can easily be justified for time they will save you.
