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.

Multizone distance measurements are possible up to 8x8 zones with a wide 63 diagonal FoV which can be reduced by software. Each zone of the VL53L5CX is measuring the distance of the target up to 4 meters, at maximum frequency of 60 Hz.

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.

The STM32 nucleo board, NUCLEO-F401RE, provides an affordable and flexible way for users to try out new ideas and build prototypes with any STM32 microcontroller, choosing from the various combinations of performance, power consumption, and features.
