ADC Input protection

KPerg.1
Associate II

I will be using 16 channels of STM32 ADC and I would like to protect them against overvoltage and ESD (those will be used as device inputs and unwanted situations can happen), my initial thought was to use a Zenner diode array and current limiting resistor on each input. I am into the digital world and I'm not 100% sure if it will work and if it won't distort the input signal. Maybe you know a better solution for such a problem?

Thanks in advance for any help!

That depends on the analog hw, impedence, etc... not one size fits all answer out there....

Use an follower opamp with low offset if you can afford it.
