VL6180X Premium evaluation kit - NRND - Replaced by P-NUCLEO-6180X1 or P-NUCLEO-6180X2

The VL6180X premium evaluation kit demonstrates the basic proximity, ranging and light sensing capabilities of the VL6180X sensor.

The evaluation kit is supplied with a cover glass material and a set of physical spacers to allow the user to understand how the device will behave in different setups.

The evaluation kit can either be run in the standard demo mode or in the developer mode.

In demo mode, the customer can observe the basic ranging capabilities of the device, and also modify many internal register settings via the SW GUI. In addition there is also the option to data log the system state when a range or ambient light sensor measurement is performed.

In the developer mode it is possible to directly load a custom I2C setup via the customer interface port to configure the device as required.
