The EVALKIT-VL6180X is an evaluation kit that provides an introduction to the proximity, ranging and light sensing capabilities of the VL6180X sensor, combined with the powerful STM32 F401RE microcontroller.
The STM32 Nucleo board 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. The Arduino™ connectivity support and ST Morpho headers make it easy to expand the functionality of the STM32 Nucleo open development platform with a wide choice of specialized expansion boards.
The VL6180X plug-in features the VL6180X proximity sensor, based on ST’s FlightSense™, Time-of-Flight technology, and provides very accurate ranging information, as well as ambient light sensing (ALS) information. The range measurements are independent of the target reflectance.
