This breakout ships with a protector over the sensor. It must be removed before use! See details at the bottom of the Overview page.

Power Pins

  • VIN - This is the power pin. To power the board, give it the same power as the logic level of your microcontroller - e.g. for a 3V microcontroller like a Feather M4, use 3V, or for a 5V microcontroller like Arduino, use 5V.
  • GND - This is common ground for power and logic.

I2C Logic Pins

The default I2C address for the VL53L4CD is 0x29.

  • SCL - I2C clock pin, connect to your microcontroller I2C clock line. There's a 10K pullup on this pin.
  • SDA - I2C data pin, connect to your microcontroller I2C data line. There's a 10K pullup on this pin.
  • STEMMA QT - These connectors allow you to connect to development boards with STEMMA QT connectors or to other things with various associated accessories.

Other Pins

  • GPIO - This is the interrupt output pin, it is 2.8V logic level output - it can be read by 3.3V and most 5V logic microcontrollers.
  • XSHUT - This is the shutdown pin. It is active low, and is logic-level shifted so you can use 3V or 5V logic.

LED Jumper

  • LED jumper - This jumper is located on the back of the board. Cut the trace on this jumper to cut power to the "on" LED.
