The X-CUBE-53L1A1 software package is an expansion of the STM32Cube, to go with the X-NUCLEO-53L1A1 expansion board for STM32 Nucleo.
The source code of this package is based on STM32Cube and is aligned with the “multi-platform” file and directory structure to ease portability and code sharing across different STM32 MCU families.
The VL53L1X is the latest product based on ST’s patented FlightSenseTM technology. This is a ground-breaking technology allowing absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflectance. Instead of estimating the distance by measuring the amount of light reflected back from the object (which is significantly influenced by color and surface), the VL53L1X precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor Time-of-Flight (ToF).
