Offering calibrated temperature property

by kevinjwalters on Thu Aug 20, 2020 12:47 pm

Has there been any consideration on providing a calibrated temperature property on the clue/cpx/cpb/etc objects to try and offset the effect of board heating? That could have some standard constants per board to provide a more accurate temperature and there could be a feature for manual adjustments for those that want to make it more accurate or match it to their particular device/enclosure/power usage. Perhaps some auto-tweaking for things like the backlight usage could also be in the calculation.

I've seen a few cases where there's surprise about the size of the error from reading straight from the device, e.g.:

It's a decent idea; I'd certainly be willing to review a PR, but it's not likely going to take precedence over other non-enhancement features for the core devs or myself

I note Creating FunHouse Projects with CircuitPython: Temperature Logger Example is doing this within the program using 3 degrees celsius for the FunHouse with backlight, NeoPixels and Wi-Fi network off.
