TOF400F Rangefinder via UART

Hi, has anyone had success using a TOF400F (VL53L1X) rangefinder via UART instead of I2C? The module has pins for both formats but I can’t get it working via UART. I’m trying to use it on a Quad and the FC doesn’t have enough I2C pins.

Appreciate if you could share any settings.


i2c is a bus you can connect many devices to it as long as they dont have the same address.
