Shield Digital Design is proud to announce our latest product: the PMOD compatible Time-of-Flight Laser Distance Sensor based on the ST Micro VL53L0X. The sensor has a range of up to 2m, and included both the right-angle header as well as straight header for flexible use. (The VL53L0X is mounted to the bottom of the board such that it would face away from the development board when used with a straight header). The 6-Pin PMOD interface includes the I2C bus, shutdown, and an interrupt output.
Schematic is available here: TOF_Ranging_Sensor_Kicad.
Sensor test application running
You might have noticed that VCC and GND are swapped on the photos of the device… the files for my first fabrication run erroneously flipped the pins on the schematic, but the correct CAD files are ready to go for fabrication. I was still able to use the initial prototype for testing.
