Notes

The X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 expansion board features the VL6180X proximity, gesture and ALS sensor, based on ST’s FlightSense™, Time-of-Flight 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.

Further information and ordering

X-NUCLEO-6180XA1 can be purchased directly from ST web site.
The page provides additional documents like a user manual, a quick start guide, schematics, gerber files and bill of materials.
Additional SW and tools are also provided.
