    hello there.

    I have a problem with my design.

    I have an audio design placed together with an led system which is controlled by a micro controller.They both share the same Power supply which is causing problems i beleive.

    The audio system sounds great by itself, that is until i conect up the micro controller and light up a few leds.Then there is a terrible interference noise and pulse sound.

    I wonder do i need two seperate ground planes and to somhow use diodes to seperate the audio system power from the micro controller power?

    Here is a schematic to help explain the system.
