Introduction

We all like to know the temperature, right? Well, with the SparkFun Digital Temperature Sensor - TMP102 (Qwiic) we've made this just about as easy as it gets. Based off of the original Digital Temperature Sensor Breakout - TMP102, we've added Qwiic connectors to bring this bad boy into our plug-and-play Qwiic Ecosystem, made the board just a bit bigger at 1" x1", and added an address jumper instead of breaking out the address pin. Let's dive in and have some fun!
