Question about speed of VL6180x...

Hello, if am using VL6180x sensor with Arduino Uno board.
There are few libraries available on the internet to control this sensor using Arduino boards.

The program in the library is written to give sampling rate of 10Hz. The convergence time is set as 30ms for Ranging application ad 50ms for ALS.

in all it takes around half a second to give one reading.

I require sampling rate of at least 100Hz, a reading to be given after 10ms.

I am clueless how to get that much speed, and exactly which parameters must be controlled for that ......

One more question is - what is convergence time?
