Some of the small details on how to get this to work found in DC2246B evalz demo board manual, it has info on both parts and layout that can make a difference. Cancelling high order parasitics from the switching PS. How So?
Figure 2. layer 3 With the input trace directly above the return path, the EMFs are in opposite directions, and consequently cancels each other out.

I like the LT3080 regulator. (1A) It is something like the 3042. I like the idea of being able to set the output voltage down to almost zero volts. Many linear regulators do not function at low voltage.

It's a low-noise linear regulation with high PSRR up to quite high frequencies.
What more did you want to know about it?
