VL53L0X Timing budget settings

#1

Hello guys, i need your help.
I am working with VL53L0X ToF sensor with arduino. I am trying to get a sample rate of about 100 Hz by reducing timing budget. Is it possible to reduce timing budget below 20 ms (minimum in the API manual)?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Hello.

We do not know of a way to do that.

Do you know if VL53L1X can do this?

The timing budget provided in the datasheet for the VL53L1X sensor is the same as those for the VL53L0X sensor and we do not know of a way to operate outside of those specifications. Generally, we do not expect parts to be capable of reliably operating outside the range of their datasheet specifications; that is the point of providing specifications in a datasheet like that.
