X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 Proximity and ambient light sensor expansion board based on
X-NUCLEO-6180XA1
Proximity and ambient light sensor expansion board based on
VL6180X for STM32 Nucleo
Data brief
• Basic gesture recognition application can be
developed with one or multiple VL6180X
modules.
• Compatible with STM32 Nucleo board family.
• Equipped with ArduinoTM UNO R3 connector.
• RoHS compliant.
• Full system SW supplied, download from
www.st.com/vl6180x.
Description
Features
• VL6180X proximity, gesture and ambient light
sensing (ALS) module.
• Slider switch controlling 2 functions:
– Ranging measurement, beyond 400mm.
– Ambient light sensing, up to 100 kLux(a).
• 4-digit display, displaying either the distance of
a target from the proximity sensor, or the lux
value from the ambient light sensing (ALS).
• Excellent ranging accuracy, independent of the
reflectance of the target.
• In order to easily integrate multiple VL6180X’s
into customer devices, up to 3 external satellite
VL6180X boards can be connected to the
expansion board.
The X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board
features the VL6180X proximity, gesture and ALS
sensor, based on ST’s FlightSense™, Time-ofFlight technology.
It is an evaluation board that provides an
introduction to the proximity, ranging and light
sensing capabilities of the VL6180X module.
It is compatible with the STM32 Nucleo board
family, and with the Arduino UNO R3 connector
layout.
Several ST expansion boards can be superposed
through the Arduino connectors, which allows for
example to develop VL6180X applications with
Bluetooth or WiFi interface.

under the reference VL6180X-SATEL.
a. VL6180X detects up to 100kLux but since the display
is a 4 digits only, maximum displayed value is limited
to 9999 Lux.

Laser consideration
The VL6180X contains a laser emitter and corresponding drive circuitry. The laser output is
designed to remain within Class 1 laser safety limits under all reasonably foreseeable
conditions including single faults in compliance with IEC 60825-1:2007. The laser output will
remain within Class 1 limits as long as the STMicroelectronics recommended device
settings are used and the operating conditions specified in the datasheet are respected. The
laser output power must not be increased by any means and no optics should be used with
the intention of focusing the laser beam.

Compliance
Complies with 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice
No.50, dated June 24, 2007.
