I'm going to make a PCB for an AS5311 (high resolution magnetic linear encoder) and the datasheet states the following:
For 5V operation, connect the 5V supply to pin 19 and add a 2µF…10µF buffer capacitor at pin 18.
is "buffer capacitor" a regular capacitor or a special one? it would be great to know this since I dont want to spoil the AS5311. I found this diagram and the symbol for this capacitor seems to be different
