GY-530 VL53L0X Module
GY-53 VL53L0X Laser ToF Flight Time Ranging Sensor Module can be used for easy integration into your devices and basic gesture detection applications. Thanks to its 2.8V regulator and level shifters, the VL53L0X satellite board can be used in any application with a 2.8 to 5V supply.
The VL53L0X is a Time of Flight distance sensor like no other you’ve used! The sensor contains a very tiny invisible
laser source and a matching sensor. The VL53L0X can detect the “time of flight”, or how long the light has taken to
bounce back to the sensor. Since it uses a very narrow light source, it is good for determining the distance of only the
surface directly in front of it. Unlike sonars that bounce ultrasonic waves, the ‘cone’ of sense is very narrow. Unlike IR distance sensors that try to measure the amount of light bounced, the VL53L0x is much more precise and doesn’t
have linearity problems or ‘double imaging’ where you can’t tell if an object is very far or very close.
The PCB section supporting the VL53L0X module is perforated so that developers can break off the mini PCB for use in a 2.8V supply application using flying leads. This makes it easier to integrate into development and evaluation devices due to its small form factor.
The module is designed for low-power operation. Ranging measurements can be automatically performed at user-defined intervals. Multiple thresholds and interrupt schemes are supported to minimize host operations. Serial port and PWM to read the data code: STM32, Arduino, 51 MCU.
Note that due to the infrared will be affected by the outside light, in the light will affect the maximum range of measurement, will not affect the measurement accuracy. Default configuration: serial baud rate 9600, automatic output, high precision mode. When using, please remove the sensor film.
