Satellite: mini-PCB with VL6180X for easy integration (compatible with VL6180X expansion boards)

The VL6180X satellite boards are hardware add-ons for the X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board. Up to 3 satellite boards can be connected to the X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board, enabling multi sensors applications.Satellite board can be used as well for basic gesture recognition applications.Thanks to its 2.8 V regulator, the VL6180X satellite board can be used in any application with a 3.3 to 10 V supply.The part supporting the VL6180X module, 2.54 mm connector and output regulator is scored so that developers can break off the mini PCB for use in a 2.8 V supply application using flying leads. This makes it easier to integrate into development and evaluation devices due to its small form factor.

Key Features

  • Each satellite board integrates:
    • VL6180X 3-in-1 module (proximity, gesture and ambient light sensor)
    • 2.8 V output regulator
  • Allows basic gesture recognition use case
  • True distance measurement independent of target size and reflectance
  • Able to function in multi-module applications
  • Divisible board enabling use as mini-PCB breakout board, easy to integrate in customer device
  • Compatible with X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board
    • Up to three VL6180X satellite boards can be plugged into the expansion board through its 2.54 mm connector
  • Can be used with STM32 Nucleo boards, available in the following Nucleo packs:
    • P-NUCLEO-6180X1: Nucleo pack based on full-feature Nucleo board with STM32F401RE Dynamic Efficiency ARM® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller
    • P-NUCLEO-6180X2: Nucleo pack based on ultra-low-power Nucleo board with STM32L053R8 ARM® Cortex®-M0+ microcontroller
