Short Name: FPGA Temperature (Degrees C)

Property of niRFSG

Returns the FPGA temperature in degrees Celsius.

Serial signals between the sensor and the system control unit can potentially modulate the signal being generated, thus causing phase spurs. After the device thoroughly warms up, its temperature varies only slightly (less than 1 degree Celsius) and slowly, and it is not necessary to constantly poll this temperature sensor.
