Multi-targets ranging sensor Nucleo pack based on VL53L3CX for STM32 Nucleo

The P-NUCLEO-53L3A2 is a complete evaluation kit allowing anyone to learn, evaluate, and develop their application using the VL53L3CX, Time-of-Flight (ToF), ranging sensor with multi target detection.

The VL53L3CX is the latest ToF product from STMicroelectronics and embeds ST’s third generation FlightSense patented technology. It combines a high performance proximity and ranging sensor, with multi target distance measurements and automatic smudge correction. The miniature reflowable package integrates a single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) array and physical infrared filters to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions, with a wide range of cover glass windows.
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.
