[SI-LIST] : Need Information on effect of 45 degree angles on high speed sign

Hello All,

I am trying to find out at what frequency does a 45 degree angle in
circuit traces have a large affect. Has there ever been a study on the
impact of 45 degree angles on circuit board traces? If so, where can I get
some further information.

Howard Johnsons book states "Don't worry about 45 degree angles they
are fine as is." Has anyone ever had a problem that contradicts this
statement?

I am designing a board right now that has clock frequencies up to
622 MHz. I believe I will not have any problems using 45 degree angles at
622 MHz, but would appreciate anyone's input on this issue.

Thanks in advance for your help.
