Proximity sensing for portable touchscreen devices (smartphones, tablets, gaming devices); Distance measurement in other applications. Also works as an ambient light sensor.
VL6180X IC, based on ST´s patented FlightSense technology
Sensor consists of IR emitter, ambient light sensor and range sensor
Measures distance by calculating photon time of flight
Uses either 3.3V or 5V power supply
Equally sensitive to all objects regardless of color and reflectivity
Ready-to-use examples save development time
Supported in all MikroElektronika compilers
mikroBUS is specially designed pinout standard with SPI, I2C, Analog, UART, Interrupt, PWM, Reset and Power supply pins.
