dont forget to test the esr of such big capacitor !
the capacity can be good but the capacitor unusable if the esr is to high !

I don't really understand your question. My thoughts are build a pulse generator and feed it into your test capacitor via a diode and a current limiting resistor. So every pulse that come along will "pump" up the capacitor a little. So by setting a comparator to stop the oscillator at a certain voltage and counting the number of pulses, (...)

No, the times used are just adapted to the load time constant of the test capacitor C_load (1MΩ*100pF=100?s) and the discharge time constant of the HBM (1500Ω*100pF=150ns, which is standard for the HBM). See this PDF: 98898

The cardboard material has negligible loss tangent at 915 MHz. But does this imply anything at all at frequencies <25 MHz?

You can use your multimeter as an ohmmeter to test the capacitor.
1) Discharge the capacitor by shortening its leads. That is - use a wire and connect the leads of the capacitor together. This will discharge it.
2) put your multimeter in the high ranges 10K-1M
3)CONNECT MULTIMETER TO capacitor (...)

I have not used Calibre exactly, but my guess is that somehow the extraction rule included different geometry shapes in the two trials.
A sure way to test it is to use one Rectangular piece of metal, do the two trials as you said, and do one hand calculation.
If successful, move on to give it more complex shapes. Verify it thoroughly this way

You will have to post a picture with the model to get a correct answer.
You may need to use a lumped port. I've seen a snapshot of an example where the filter feed was perpendicular to the ground plane. You have two options in this case:
1) Draw the feed of the microstrip of the test board and put a regular waveport on the microstrip.

Normally we try to do a loop test on the CMFB loop with the main loop inputs put at the VMID voltage which is VDD-VSS/2. Hence you try to measure the loop gain and loop phase margin.
But in the case of switched capacitor CMFB, as long as the settling time of the switches is quite reliable in the clock rates, the CMFB is uncondi
