Hy ST,

in a customers project I deal with the VL53l0X quite a bit, we have a nice prototype up and running and are about to decide if we want to start designing a series device.

Ever once in a while I look into this forum and follow the discussion about the device and come to the conclusion, that ST is not very willing to provide further informations about the insides and usage of the device.

The thread VL53L0X Register Map? nails it down very nice.

Can anyone of ST maybe give some information about the politics around VL53l0X? Will there be a better support of the device in the future? Is it running in high volume already? Was it designed for one target application and no other user or project is supported? We probably must take the response to these questions into our decision of the series product.

Best regards
