Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to use a 16 channel multiplexer to read voltage readings? If so, how would you go about it? Thanks.

You want the Arduino to be able to read 16 voltages from 0 to 5V?
A multiplexer with 16 inputs, 4 select lines, 1 output going into an analog input pin could do that.

I don't know if the switch resistance will impact the signals you want to measure.

Parts with lower switch resistance are available, will need more control lines to select a channel tho

and they're all surface mount. All the thruhole parts are in the 80-100+ ohm range.

Or two 8-channel ADC chips with SPI interface

12-bit data for better resolution, and also a faster conversion rate than the '328P internal ADC - 100K vs 9-10K.
