Hi
I am interested in the VL53L0X, ToF sensor and display that is on your web site.
What is the display used -> part number and can you connect the sensor directly to display with no coding?


Thanks Victor

That would be an OLED featherwing https://www.adafruit.com/product/2900.

No. The ToF sensor is just a sensor that will provide distance measurements. The display just lights up pixels it's told to. Both connect to a Microcontroller's I2C bus. Code is needed to configure everything, ask the sensor for measurements, and display them as desired.

Hi Dave

Can you tell what feather micro is used in the VL53L0X video.

Thanks Victor

I have no idea, but most of them should work fine. I always go with an M4 Express as it provides great performance and works exceptionally well with CircuitPython.
