SparkFun Qwiic VL53L4CD Distance Sensor

SparkFun Qwiic VL53L4CD Distance Sensor (SEN-18993) is a compact breakout board based on the STMicroelectronics VL53L4CD ToF (Time of Flight) Sensor Module. The VL53L4CD uses a VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) to emit an infrared laser to time the reflection to the target, measuring a 1mm to 1300mm range with millimeter resolution. The laser emitter features an 18° FoV (Field of View) for improved performance under ambient light, with a ranging speed up to 100Hz.

SparkFun Qwiic VL53L4CD Distance Sensor Qwiic Connect System can easily be connected, without soldering, to any Qwiic-based project. The signals of the VL53L4CD are also broken out on 0.1″ spaced pins for connection to a breadboard.

The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields, and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This feature reduces the required PCB space, and the connectors are polarized to ensure a correct hookup.

Note: This is a CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT CLASSIFIED IEC 60825-1 2014.
