 If the feed wires from the power supply unit (PSU) to the load are of sufficient length to have a bit of impedance and supply several loads, then the electrical noise (dirt) caused by one load can cross to other loads. This would usually be positive & negative sharp spikes superimposed on the DC. If the power lines that feed clean and dirty loads exhibit noise, then the effects can also cause  microprocessor ​ “brown-outs” or resets which may force a re-boot or even more subtle disturbances to your previously happy data. If the feed wires from the power supply unit (PSU) to the load are of sufficient length to have a bit of impedance and supply several loads, then the electrical noise (dirt) caused by one load can cross to other loads.

-The separation of the digital low current circuitry with a separate “clean” PSU is one of the classic precautions to be observed ( as you and we all are frequently reminded on the MERG forum! ). While this may be the best method to provide clean power, it is a good design practice to provide bypass capacitors next to your digital ICs to help diminish the effect of power line noise.
