I would actually prefer using curved traces, unfortunately the simulation
software (Ansoft) used by the RF engineer does not like curved transmission
lines. Thus, I am forced to use straight sections and 90 degree bends with
miters when doing RF designs. The RF engineer performs a full EM simulation
of my entire design prior to release. The limitation is really with his
Ansoft software : (
