  • I have bought a Sparkfun VL6180 Sensor Board and connected it to a STM32F415 MikroE Mini M4 MCU. I can correctly talk to it by asking the Model ID, (which returns 0xB4 correctly), but the RESULT_RANGE_STATUS register (0x4D) always returns 0x19 (0b00011001) which according to the VL6180 datasheet means that it has a VCSEL continuity error (bits 7:4 or 0b0001). I have gotten this with both a VL6180 sensor (which has the 2.8V DC regulator) and with another VL6180 breakout (without the regulator). Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
