The BeagleBone Black is rated for operation at ambient temperatures from 0-to-50C (32-to-122F).
In many applications it can be helpful to know what temperature the CPU is running at. The Texas Instrument AM3358 ARM Cortex processor (CPU) has a built-in temperature sensors to ensure safe operation. In this tutorial we’ll explore how this temperature sensor information can be easily accessed and displayed with just a few simple lines of code.
