During this one-hour webinar, we will present our new ST time-of-flight proximity and long distance ranging sensors based on Histogram architecture. The Time-of-Flight sensors that we will present are:
VL53L3CX: proximity and ranging sensor with multi-target detection up to 5 meters
VL53L1CB: extra-long distance ranging sensor with multi-zone and multi-target detection up to 8 meters.

We will start with our FlightSense roadmap and the most suitable applications for these two new ToF sensors. Then, we will explain how the histogram algorithms work and the major performance benefits they introduce. Finally, we will suggest a few typical applications enabled by these two sensors.

At the end of the webinar, you will have a greater understanding of histogram algorithms and the benefits they deliver in our latest ST FlightSense Time-of-Flight proximity and ranging sensors, and which sensor best fits your needs.

We will guide you through the evaluation of our sensors and show you where to find our design resources and software code examples
