What is the magic at 50GHz?

Subramanya,You just missed a long running discussion on the subject.  Look for any of the list items under "MECL System Design Handbook".  Cutting to the chase, it shouldn't have any measureable effect on your system unless you are at 50 GHz or above.Ken

Subject: [SI-LIST] : Antenna Problem on the Board
Hello SI Gurus,I have a basic question here. We all know that "Right angled traces are never used on PCBs" as the act as antennas (better antennas than the curved traces). In an article I read that this radiation is due not to the frequency of the signal , but to it's rise time. Could someone please explain me this theory ?  Thanks and Regards,Subramanya C K
