CircuitPython CPU Temp

This little built in sensor comes with all ATSAMD21 chips, and its really nice to have a temperature sensor so we let you read it via CircuitPython, its new since 2.0.0 and only available on the ATSAMD21-based boards (e.g. not ESP8266)

It's so easy, we'll just give you the two REPL commands

>>> import microcontroller
>>> microcontroller.cpu.temperature

That's it! You'll have the temperature in Centigrade printed out. Note it is not exactly the same as ambient temperature, and its not super precise. But it's kinda close!
