# Creates a C code lookup table for doing ADC to temperature conversion
# on a microcontroller
# based on: http://hydraraptor.blogspot.com/2007/10/measuring-temperature-easy-way.html
"""Thermistor Value Lookup Table Generator
Generates lookup to temperature values for use in a microcontroller in C format based on:
http://hydraraptor.blogspot.com/2007/10/measuring-temperature-easy-way.html
The main use is for Arduino programs that read data from the circuit board described here:
http://make.rrrf.org/ts-1.0
Usage: python createTemperatureLookup.py [options]
Options:
-h, --help show this help
--r0=... thermistor rating where # is the ohm rating of the thermistor at t0 (eg: 10K = 10000)
--t0=... thermistor temp rating where # is the temperature in Celsuis to get r0 (from your datasheet)
--beta=... thermistor beta rating. see http://reprap.org/bin/view/Main/MeasuringThermistorBeta
--r1=... R1 rating where # is the ohm rating of R1 (eg: 10K = 10000)
--r2=... R2 rating where # is the ohm rating of R2 (eg: 10K = 10000)
--num-temps=... the number of temperature points to calculate (default: 20)
--max-adc=... the max ADC reading to use. if you use R1, it limits the top value for the thermistor circuit, and thus the possible range of ADC values
