The VL53L8CX 8x8 multizone Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor from STMicroelectronics is now being shipped by distributor Mouser Electronics.

The sensor enhances performance under ambient light with reduced power consumption.

It is based on ST's FlightSense technology and is designed to deliver accurate ranging up to 400cm with a 65° diagonal FoV. The sensor measures an absolute distance regardless of the target colour and reflectance, and it incorporates a powerful newer generation VCSEL and two advanced meta-surface lenses.

This all-in-one module allows a wider variety of high-performance use cases, such as low-power system activation, gesture recognition, SLAM for robotics, liquid level monitoring, and many more.
