use X-NUCLEO-53L0A1 satellites as proximity sensor
Hi, I'm new with stm32 and mbed environment. I'm trying to use VL53L0X satellites as proximity/distance sensor but I have few unsolved questions: 1) in this datasheet I can see that only first six pin of satellites are used: http://www.st.com/content/ccc/resource/technical/document/data_brief/group0/28/76/d4/28/20/f5/4c/1b/DM00284748/files/DM00284748.pdf/jcr:content/translations/en.DM00284748.pdf is right? 2) is there an easy example on how to use it like this for hcsr04 arduino sensor: https://developer.mbed.org/teams/20170113-Corso-Rapid-Prototyping-with-ST/code/STMNucleoF401RE_ExampleCode_13_Ultasound/ ?? (examples given by downloading his own software are little bit difficult) 3) which pins i have to connect if I don't want putting this board on the stm32 board? Thanks for the support
Question relating to:

1) Only pins 1-6 are used on the satellite board. The pin mappings are :
Pin 1 - VL53L0X Interrupt pin. Pin 2 - I2C SCL. Pin 3 - VL53L0X XShutdown pin. Pin 4 - I2C SDA. Pin 5 - +3v3 input. VDD_Sensor. Pin 6 - GND(Ground).
Pins 7-10 are unused & unconnected.
2) There is a simple "hello world" application (HellowWorld_53L0A1), using the central, onboard VL53L0X sensor available at : https://developer.mbed.org/components/X-NUCLEO-53L0A1/
There will be a library update and further example programs published soon.
3) The X_Nucleo_53L0A1 expansion board uses the following pins to connect to each sensor :
CN5 Arduino Connector D8 (Pin 1) - GPIO1_L, left satellite VL53L0X interrupt. GND (Pin 7) - Ground D14(Pin 9) - I2C SDA. D15(Pin 10) - I2C SCL.
CN6 Arduino Connector +3v3(Pin4) GND(Pin 6 & 7)
CN8 Arduino Connector A2(Pin 3) - GPIO1, centre/on-board VL53L0X interrupt
CN9 Arduino Connector D2(Pin 3) - GPIO1_R, right satellite VL53L0X interrupt.
These are defined in Tables 3 & 4 in the user manual (UM2047), available from the url link below.
XShut, XShut_L and XShut_R are not driven through the Arduino connectors. However, they are available through the STMPE1600 GPIO Expanders on the expansion board. XShut is available via GPIO15 on U19. XShut_L is available via GPIO14, and XShut_R is avialable via GPIO15, on U21. Both GPIO_Expanders are addressable via I2C. U19 is at address 0x42 (7-bit) and U22 is at address 0x43 (7-bit.)
Further information on the X-Nucleo_53L0A1 board (& VL53L0X) can be found here :
I hope this helps.
