Sales Briefcase
  • The VL53L3CX is the latest Time-of-Flight (ToF) product from STMicroelectronics and embeds ST’s third generation FlightSense patented technology. It combines a high performance proximity and ranging sensor, with multi target distance measurements and automatic smudge correction. The miniature reflowable package integrates a single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) array and physical infrared filters to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions, with a wide range of cover glass windows.

    The VL53L3CX combines the benefits of a high-performance proximity sensor, with excellent short distance linearity, together with ranging capability up to 3 m.
    With patented algorithms and ingenious module construction, the VL53L3CX is also able to detect different objects within the field of view (FoV) with depth understanding. The ST histogram algorithms allow cover glass crosstalk immunity beyond 80 cm, and dynamic smudge compensation.

    Key Features

    • Fully integrated miniature module
      • Emitter: 940 nm invisible laser (VCSEL) and its analog driver
      • Low-power microcontroller running advanced digital firmware
      • Size: 4.4 x 2.4 x 1 mm
    • Fast, accurate distance ranging
      • Histogram based technology
      • Up to 300 cm+ detection with full field of view (FoV)
      • Immune to cover glass cross-talk and fingerprint smudge at long distance with patented algorithms (direct ToF)
      • Dynamic fingerprint smudge compensation
      • Short distance, high accuracy linearity
      • Multi target detection and distance measurement
    • Typical full FoV: 25 °
    • Easy integration
      • Reflowable component
      • Part-to-part or generic shape crosstalk calibration available
      • Single power supply
      • Works with many types of cover glass materials
      • I²C interface (up to 1 MHz)
      • Xshutdown (reset) and interrupt GPIO to optimize ranging operation
      • C and Linux full set of software drivers for turnkey ranging
