ADAU1701 max ratings/protection on adc

Dear all,


i'm using the adau 1701 with an 18k external serial resistor for the build in ADC, resulting in a 2V RMS input to the specified 100µA input fullscale. What happens if i would give more than 2V RMS in, besides clipping?

is there a built in protection, or could a higher voltage (current >100µA) cause damage to the ADAU?


my suggestion would be then two z-diodes (2,7V) in antiserial connection then parallel to the input to have a voltage limiter...
