> Did you try any passive filters between the switchers and linear regulators?
Yes, I *always* use passive filters on the outputs of switching
regulators. As others have posted, it's not just a matter of the
conducted noise on the supply rail -- switching noise propogates on the
ground bus, and it is also radiated and coupled into downstream stages,
including downstream power supply buses. That is, it can very easily
bypass whatever filtering you put in the direct conduction path.
