MPXHZ6116A Output Loading

I am reviewing a design in which the output of a MPXHZ6116A pressure sensor is being loaded with a 10nF capacitor to GND.

This value of capacitor is significantly larger than the 47pF shown in the data sheet's "Figure 3. Typical Applications".


I have no experience working with pressure sensors but have a concern that this greater capacitance may have an undesirable effect on the performance the sensor.

What effect(s), if any, could this 10nF load have on the performance of the MPXHZ6116A?

Thank you.
