More Accurate Temperature on R Pro?
Hello, I am currently working with an R Pro and am logging temperature, but it seems like heat from the board causes the thermistor to show a temperature higher than room temperature.
Room temperature being about 23* C but I consistently get above 30* C on the readings. Is this normal for readings off the internal thermistor? And if so,
I read a post about someone who had a similar issue, (http://community.mbientlab.com/discussion/comment/1239/#Comment_1239) and it was mentioned that adding a thermistor to the R is possible. ( (http://projects.mbientlab.com/metawear-and-thermistor/)
Laura mentions that we can add our own thermistor to the R, but can we also do so on the R Pro? I am not too familiar with how firmware/GPIO stuff work, but is soldering a 10k thermistor with a 10k bias resistor as mentioned in the article the extent of modification I need to do, or do I need to also read from the GPIO instead of the internal thermistor?
