Hi, may I ask you? 
Is it any difference between STSW-IMG003 (api for VL6180X) and STSW-IMG011 (api for VL6180V1)? Is it working both sensor on same API ? 
Thank you for replay? 
Best regards Loring.

The VL6180V1 and the VL6180X are identically the same silicon. But on the V1 chip we filled in the ALS hole, and don't have to calibrate it - or install the filter. So the V1 is less expensive.

The software should be pretty identical, although the ALS functions have been removed from the V1 version. 

Feel free to run either, although I'd tend to prefer the STSW-IMG011 API for the 6180V1.
