VL53L0X board with JST-SH connector

A distance sensor using LASER!

Similar projects worth following
This sensor is available on boards from China, and Pololu. How ever, I don't find their form factor and use of pin headers usable for my application. I designed this with application, rather than breadboard, in mind.

The sensor can measure distances up to 2m. There are arduino libraries available from Pololu. Communication on i2c bus, and it's possible to have more than one sensor on a single i2c bus.

The sensor itself is quite costly, about 7 USD.

First batch ordered from PCB:NG. I'll get back to you once I have recieved the order. Peace

  • 1 × VL53L0X Worlds smallest time-of-flight range sensor.

    Went to the post office to retrieve them this morning. At a first glance they look just right. Now I must wait for my JST-SH 6 cables to arrive from China, if it wasn't for their new years celebration I'm sure I would have received them already. I should update the board with test pads on the back.

    I ordered the assembly through PCB:NG. They, like OSH Park, only offer one color of the solder mask, PCB:NG only offers red. At first, I thought their soldermask color would have been close to the red they use on their webpage, but in reality it is slightly darker. It looks more awsome, actually. I don't know if this is the way it is, or if it's perhaps a color mixing thing.

    I can now see that the width of the board can be a bit narrower, this will also go into the next version of the board.
