The spec sheets for A/D converters usually talk about using separate grounding
systems [ie, ground planes] for digital and analog cktry, and also using a one-point
ground connection between the 2 planes, and also never running digital traces into
the analog areas. Therefore, with good design, the ADCs will never see a ground
shift associated with high-current devices.

Thanks for all of the great replies everyone and I think I understand now.  So I mostly want to avoid a situation where the GND and PGND are sharing a single trace before they reach a ground plane?
