Time-of-flight 3-in-1 module with proximity sensor, gesture and ambient light sensing
A complete development eco-system is available for evaluating the VL6180X, the first fully integrated proximity and ambient light sensor based on FlightSense™, ST’s patented time-of-flight technology.
Two very user-friendly Nucleo evaluation packs including an STM32 Nucleo board and VL6180X expansion board are available. The P-NUCLEO-6180X1 includes a full-feature STM32F401 microcontroller.
You can even connect up to three additional external small PCBs, VL6180X-SATEL satellites, to these expansion boards in order to integrate the VL6180X proximity sensors directly into your devices.
These evaluation kits will let you become familiar with the features and performance of the VL6180X and start developing your own applications.
The Nucleo evaluation packs can be used stand-alone, just with an USB connection for power supply, or can be connected to a PC, using an advanced GUI.
A complete firmware package (X-CUBE-6180XA1) is available and includes binary code to flash the STM32 Nucleo boards and source code examples compliant with STM32Cube embedded software.
