Time of Flight (ToF) Distance Measurement Evaluation Kit - Cat Shark

The ISL29501-CS-EVKIT1Z is a distance measurement reference design consisting of an optical board and a controller board. It combines the ISL29501 chip with an OSRAM SFH 4550 IR emitting LED and OSRAM SFH 213FA photo-diode. The two circuit boards are connected together with a flat flex cable. Included is a USB flash drive containing the evaluation software for a PC and related technical documents.

The ISL29501-CS-EVKIT1Z kit also allows quick evaluation of the ISL29501 performance for a 5m sensing system
