Hi Wagner,

I don't see why you couldn't low-pass filter the output of the reference?
Prodiving that the thing that is using the ref isn't drawing much current
from it, you could just put a resistor in line and add a low-leakage cap
after it.

Even if the thing that needs the reference needs to draw a good deal of
current, you could buffer with a low-noise op-amp and still do the LPF.
