Category: PIR / IR and Optical Sensor

The VL53L1X is a state-of-the-art, Time-of-Flight (ToF), laser-ranging sensor, enhancing the ST Flight Sense™ product family. It is the fastest miniature ToF sensor on the market with accurate
VL53L1X Time of Flight (ToF) Sensor ranging up to 4 m and fast ranging frequency up to 50 Hz Housed in a miniature and reflowable package, it integrates a SPAD receiving array, a 940 nm invisible Class1 laser emitter, physical infrared filters, and optics to achieve the best ranging performance in various ambient lighting conditions with a range of cover window options. Unlike conventional IR sensors, the VL53L1X uses
ST’s latest generation ToF technology which allows absolute distance measurement whatever the target color and reflectance. It is also possible to program the size of the ROI on the receiving array, allowing the sensor FoV to be reduced


  1. User detection (Autonomous low-power mode) to
    power on/off and lock/unlock devices like
    personal computers/laptops and the IoT
  2. Service robots and vacuum cleaners (long
    distance and fast obstacle detection)
  3. Drones (landing assistance, hovering, ceiling
  4. Smart shelves and vending machines (goods
    inventory monitoring)
  5. Sanitary (robust user detection whatever the
    target reflectance)
  6. Smart building and smart lighting (people
    detection, gesture control)
  7. 1 D gesture recognition
  8. Laser assisted autofocus which enhances the
    camera autofocus system speed and robustness,
    especially in difficult scenes (low light and low
    contrast) and video focus tracking assistance


  1. Fully integrated miniature module
    Size: 4.9×2.5×1.56 mm
    Emitter: 940 nm invisible laser (Class1)
    SPAD (single photon avalanche diode) receiving array with integrated lens
    Low-power microcontroller running advanced
    digital firmware
  2. Pin-to-pin compatible with the VL53L0X Flight Sense™ ranging sensor
  3. Fast and accurate long distance ranging
    Up to 400 cm distance measurement
    Up to 50 Hz ranging frequency
  4. Typical full field-of-view (FoV): 27 °
  5. Programmable region-of-interest (ROI) size on
    the receiving array, allowing the sensor FoV to be
  6. Programmable ROI position on the receiving
    array, providing multizone operation control from
    the host
  7. Easy integration
    Single reflowable component
    Can be hidden behind many cover window materials
    Software driver and code examples for turnkey ranging
    Single power supply (2v8)
    I²C interface (up to 1 MHz)
    Shutdown and interrupt pins
