Expansion board includes ToF ranging sensor with FoV programming

The STMicroelectronics P-NUCLEO-53L1A2, available now from RS components, is a complete evaluation kit that enables anyone to learn, evaluate, and develop their application employing the VL53L1 ToF, ranging sensor with multi-object detection and FoV programming.

The kit is a state-of-the-art, ToF, laser-ranging, miniature sensor enhancing the company’s FlightSense product family. Contained in a miniature and reflowable package, it combines a SPAD array, physical infrared filters, and optics to deliver the best ranging performance in multiple ambient lighting conditions, with a broad range of cover windows.

The STM32 nucleo board and NUCLEO-F401RE offer an affordable and flexible way for users to test new ideas and create prototypes with any STM32 microcontroller, selecting from the multiple combinations of performance, power consumption, and features.
