Hello,

VL53L8CA is active product on your product list but i couldn't find a datasheet and sample.

I have contacted with my local reseller buying termin is 22 weeks. Before buying i would like to have a datasheet and sample. What is the last situation of VL53L8CA?  Thanks in advance,

Indeed no datasheet - just 2 non-specific application notes:

ST has a few customers who by their parts in massive quantities. And we manage these parts differently. 

The VL53L8CX is the part number you want. It's available in more reasonable quantities.

Unless you actually need a few million parts. If so, please contact ST sales directly. They would love to talk to you.

Cheers,

@John E KVAM - the https://www.st.com/en/imaging-and-photonics-solutions/vl53l8ca.html page now seems to have disappeared - was it not supposed to be public?

Thank you for your answering but i am aware about the VL53Lxx series so VL53L8CX's performance is not enough for my project. VL53L8CA announced as 2nd generation as low power and 2 times more distance. That is why i would like to have a datasheet and if possible, sample for continuing to my project. BR,

I believe that advertisement indicated the L8s have 2 times more distance than the VL53L5. (Actually, they both have the same 4M max range, but with 2X more light emitted, the VL53L8 sensors have a longer effective distance.)

Sorry I can't help. 

Maybe the next chip will be enough.

Hello, I just would like to add missing information.  Only 2x ranging performance in ambient light levels.

Max range is stil 4m.
