Product overview

Description

The VL53L5CX is a state of the art, Time-of-Flight (ToF), multizone ranging sensor enhancing the ST FlightSense product family. Housed in a miniature reflowable package, it integrates a SPAD array, physical infrared filters, and diffractive optical elements (DOE) to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions with a range of cover glass materials. The use of a DOE above the vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) allows a square FoV to be projected onto the scene. The reflection of this light is focused by the receiver lens onto a SPAD array.
Unlike conventional IR sensors, the VL53L5CX uses ST's latest generation, direct ToF technology which allows absolute distance measurement whatever the target color and reflectance. It provides accurate ranging up to 400 cm and can work at fast speeds (60 Hz), which makes it the fastest, multizone, miniature ToF sensor on the market.
Multizone distance measurements are possible up to 8x8 zones with a wide 63 ° diagonal FoV which can be reduced by software
Thanks to ST Histogram patented algorithms, the VL53L5CX is able to detect different objects within the FoV. The Histogram also provides immunity to cover glass crosstalk beyond 60 cm.
  • All features

    • Fast and accurate multizone distance ranging sensor
      • Multizone ranging output with either 4x4 or 8x8 separate zones
      • Autonomous Low-power mode with interrupt programmable threshold to wake up the host
      • Up to 400 cm ranging
      • Multitarget detection and distance measurement in each zone
      • 60 Hz frame rate capability
      • Histogram processing and algorithmic compensation minimizes or removes impact of cover glass crosstalk
      • Motion indicator for each zone to show if targets have moved and how they have moved
    • Fully integrated miniature module with wide field of view (FoV)
      • Emitter: 940 nm invisible light vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) and integrated analog driver
      • 63 ° diagonal square FoV using diffractive optical elements (DOE) on both transmitter and receiver
      • Receiving array of single photon avalanche diodes (SPADs)
      • Low-power microcontroller running Firmware
      • Size: 6.4 x 3.0 x 1.5 mm
    • Easy integration
      • Single reflowable component
      • Flexible power supply options, single 3.3 V or 2.8 V operation or combination of either 3.3 V or 2.8 V AVDD with 1.8 V IOVDD
      • Compatible with wide range of cover glass materials
