I want to use a buck-converter for converting my battery voltage to a 
voltage usable by a microcontroller. My question is if I need anything 
between the buck-converter and the micrcontroller to reduce noise (e.g. 
ferrit bead or LC-filter).
I am using TPS82740B as Converter.

Thanks a lot

Usually not, except if you're using analog circuitry.

Use a LDO if you want low noise, especially if you want to supply a

Consider the datasheets and compare the ripple from the Switching 
regulator to the maximum allowable ripple for the microcontroller.

An LDO is not necesarry in most cases, but will a secure solution to 
avoid proplems (if equipped with capacitiors according to the 

Make shure to  have enough capacitors near to the switching regulator 
and (espacially 100nF ceramic) near to the microcontroller.
