  • The VL53L0X is a new generation Time-of-Flight (ToF) laser-ranging module housed in the smallest package on the market today, providing accurate distance measurement whatever the target reflectances unlike conventional technologies. It can measure absolute distances up to 2m, setting a new benchmark in ranging performance levels, opening the door to various new applications.

    The VL53L0X integrates a leading-edge SPAD array (Single Photon Avalanche Diodes) and embeds ST’s second generation FlightSense™ patented technology.
    The VL53L0X’s 940 nm VCSEL emitter (Vertical Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser), is totally invisible to the human eye, coupled with internal physical infrared filters, it enables longer ranging distance, higher immunity to ambient light, and better robustness to cover glass optical crosstalk.

    Key Features

    • Fully integrated miniature module
      • 940 nm laser VCSEL
      • VCSEL driver
      • Ranging sensor with advanced embedded micro controller
      • 4.4 x 2.4 x 1.0 mm
    • Fast, accurate distance ranging
      • Measures absolute range up to 2 m
      • Reported range is independent of the target reflectance
      • Advanced embedded optical cross-talk compensation to simplify cover glass selection
    • Eye safe
      • Class 1 laser device compliant with latest standard IEC 60825-1:2014 - 3rd edition
    • Easy integration
      • Single reflowable component
      • No additional optics
      • Single power supply
      • I2C interface for device control and data transfer
      • Xshutdown (reset) and interrupt GPIO
      • Programmable I2C address
