LDOs are certainly very simple devices to use them in design compared to the switching regulators. There are certainly lot of them which are must have in the designs as per the need.

I get a good chuckle over TI's use of the TPS prefix in their regulator lineup.  I have the cover sheet for the TPS54310 data sheet pinned up on my cube wall. Bill Lumbergh would have loved this - a genuine TPS report.

I agree with your statement about LDO noise vs switchers--but some of the newest switchers are extremely low noise and may be low-enough for your application--don't rule them out too soon!

In a low-level analog environment the LDOs keep the supply nice and clean.  Swiitchers on the other hand scream like a banshee.  Just try scope probing those little analog signals with that switcher howling away.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
