VL53L0X World’s smallest time-of-flight (ToF) ranging sensor d The VL53L0X is the second-generation laser-ranging sensor based on ST’s patented FlightSenseTM technology The VL53L0X is the smallest time-of-flight (ToF) sensor on the market today. It is fully integrated and embeds an infrared, eye-safe laser, advanced filters and an ultra-fast photon detection array. It enhances the ST FlightSenseTM product family by enabling measurements of much longer distances with a fast, accurate and robust solution, opening the door to new applications. KEY BENEFITS • Absolute distance provided (in mm) up to 2 meters in less than 30 ms TARGETED APPLICATIONS • Camera assist (ultra-fast autofocus • Fast mode: quick ranging operation at and depth map) 50 Hz • High accuracy • Low power • 4.4 x 2.4 x 1 mm reflowable package • Advanced ambient light rejection • 940 nm invisible light emission • Works with cover glass • User detection for power saving in smartphones or laptops • Gesture control • Drones • Robotic and industrial control • IoT • Domestic appliances www.st.com/VL53L0X
TECHNOLOGY The VL53L0X contains an array of SPAD (single photon avalanche diode) detectors and an integrated 940 nm light source based on an eye-safe Class 1 VCSEL (vertical cavity surface-emitting laser) which, when used with algorithms running on an embedded microcontroller, can directly determine the distance to a target object in millimeters, even in challenging operating conditions and independent of target reflectivity. The VL53L0X is designed with an ultra-low-power system architecture, which is ideally suited for wireless and IoT use cases. The VL53L0X is supplied with a complete documentation package, example source code and a software API (application programming interface) which is compatible with a range of microcontrollers and processors. MODULE DESIGN With its small form factor of 4.4 x 2.4 x 1 mm and reflow compatibility, the VL53L0X is easy to integrate on a product’s main PCB or on a flex PCB and can then be hidden behind a wide variety of cover glass materials. Currently the VL53L0X is the only product to integrate a 940 nm wavelength VCSEL, making it invisible to the human eye and more immune to background ambient lighting.
