TheVL6180 is a proximity sensor based on ST’s patented FlightSense technology. This is a ground-breaking technology allowing absolute distance to be measured independent of target reflectance. Instead of estimating the distance by measuring the amount of light reflected back from the object (which is significantly influenced by color and surface), the VL6180 precisely measures the time the light takes to travel to the nearest object and reflect back to the sensor (Time-of-Flight).
Combining an IR emitter and a proximity sensor in a two-in-one ready-to-use reflowable package, the VL6180 is easy to integrate and saves the end-product maker long and costly optical and mechanical design optimizations.
The module is designed for low-power operation. Ranging measurements can be automatically performed at user-defined intervals. Multiple threshold and interrupt schemes are supported through two programmable GPIO pins which minimize host operations.
Host control and result reading is performed using an I2C interface.
