Precisely the reason to avoid switchers entirely and use linear-only 
voltage regulators to power noise-sensitive circuits.  As I mentioned 
before, I had to use two stages of well-designed linear regulation to 
make any switching supply acceptable (at a time-nuts level) for use with 
a Tbolt.

Best regards,
