Thermistors are resistors that predictably change resistance with temperature. This driver uses an analog reading and math to determine the temperature. They are commonly used as a low cost way to measure temperature.


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Usage Example

The hardest part of using the driver is its initialization. Here is an example for the thermistor on the Circuit Playground and Circuit Playground Express. Its a 10k series resistor, 10k nominal resistance, 25 celsius nominal temperature and 3950 B coefficient.
