This paper presents the evaluation of the L-2L de-embedding method with misalignment of the contact position. The issues of misalignment of the contact position are investigated. The analysis of misalignment in the L-2L de-embedding procedure is performed. Two comparisons are carried out to verify the error of the L-2L de-embedding method. The calculation percent error in quality factor of the transmission line becomes up to 9.0%, while the transistor S-parameter error percentage becomes up to 21% at 60 GHz in the experimental results. The results show that the measurement errors, caused by the misalignment of the contact position, should be considered carefully.
