Is is possible to attenuate the min/max range of the ADCs linked to the front panel BNCs of the Nanoscope V controller? Thanks.

The ADCs that are linked to the front panel have a fixed input range of ~+/-12V. These ADCs give true 16 bit resolution -- so, every LSB accounts for ~0.4 mV. If you need better resolution, I would recommend gaining up your signal before the front panel BNCs.

Hope this helps,
