VL6180X-SATEL
Satellite boards based on VL6180X proximity, gesture and ambient
light sensor
Data brief
• Can be used with STM32 Nucleo boards,
available in the following Nucleo packs:
– P-NUCLEO-6180X1: Nucleo pack based
on full-feature Nucleo board with
STM32F401RE Dynamic Efficiency ARM®
Cortex®-M4 microcontroller
– P-NUCLEO-6180X2: Nucleo pack based
on ultra-low-power Nucleo board with
STM32L053R8 ARM® Cortex®-M0+
microcontroller
Description
Features
• Each satellite board integrates:
– VL6180X 3-in-1 module (proximity, gesture
and ambient light sensor)
– 2.8 V output regulator
• Allows basic gesture recognition use case
• True distance measurement independent of
target size and reflectance
The VL6180X satellite boards are hardware addons for the X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion
board.
Up to 3 satellite boards can be connected to the
X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board, enabling
multi sensors applications.
Satellite board can be used as well for basic
gesture recognition applications.
Thanks to its 2.8 V regulator, the VL6180X
satellite board can be used in any application with
a 3.3 to 10 V supply.
The part supporting the VL6180X module, 2.54
mm connector and output regulator is scored so
that developers can break off the mini PCB for
use in a 2.8 V supply application using flying
leads.
This makes it easier to integrate into development
and evaluation devices due to its small form
factor.
• Able to function in multi-module applications
• Divisible board enabling use as mini-PCB
breakout board, easy to integrate in customer
device
• Compatible with X-NUCLEO-6180XA1
expansion board
– Up to three VL6180X satellite boards can
be plugged into the expansion board
through its 2.54 mm connector

VL6180X-SATEL
VL6180X Overview
The VL6180X is the latest product 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 VL6180X 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, a range sensor and an ambient light sensor, the VL6180X is easy
to integrate and saves OEMs long and costly optical and mechanical design optimizations.
The module is designed for low-power operation. Ranging and ALS measurements can be
automatically performed at user defined intervals.
Multiple threshold and interrupt schemes are supported to minimize host operations.
Divisible board
For 2.8V supply application, the satellite board can be divided along the red doted line as
shown in Figure 1, in order to only use the “mini PCB”, easier to integrate into a customer
device due to its small form factor.
