[USRP-users] ADC signal level

I think the reference level is set to about 2VP-P, and with 14 bits I'd
guess about 120uV as the minimum input level. 

But you're going to be limited to about -15dBm at the input plane to the
WBX, regardless of what you set the gain on the WBX, unless you 

 have attenuation in front to limit signals to less than about -15dBm,
to prevent damage to the LNA.

I want to know that what are maximum and minimum signal level that should be present at the input of N210 ADC to use its full dynamic range as well as avoid saturation ?
