  • The P-NUCLEO-6180A1 is an evaluation pack that provides an introduction to the proximity ranging capabilities of the VL6180 sensor, combined with the powerful STM32F401RE microcontroller.

    The VL6180 is based on patented FlightSense 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 VL6180 precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor (Time-of-Flight).
    The STM32 Nucleo board, NUCLEO-F401RE, provides an affordable and flexible way for users to try out new ideas and build prototypes with any STM32 microcontroller line, choosing from the various combinations of performance, power consumption and features.

    Key Features

    • 1x VL6180 proximity Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor
      • 4-digit display, displaying the distance of a target from the proximity sensor
      • Excellent ranging accuracy, independent of reflectance of the target
    • 1x NUCLEO-F401RE board
    • Power management access point
    • Equipped with Arduino UNO R3 connector
    • RoHS compliant
    • Full system SW (software) is supplied and can be downloaded on www.st.com/VL6180 from the Tools & Software page
    • 3x VL6180 breakout boards can be connected on the N-NUCLEO-6180A1 expansion board, in order to integrate the VL6180 in customer’s application.
