This is the Adafruit MAX31885 Arduino Library ported to Spark Core

Added hardware SPI and calibration

For hardware SPI only need to specify chip select pin. Otherwise specify 3 pins (as below)

Can calibrate to internal temp sensor, or an arbitrary calibration (note that the function is fed the calibration value, not the current temperature value. See the example for a possible method)

Uses a 4-sample moving average, via multiplication and bitshifting. Can adjust by changing a couple of lines in the source file (see comments in the read Celsius function)

Tested and works great with the Adafruit Thermocouple Breakout w/MAX31885K

These modules use SPI to communicate, 3 pins are required to interface. Technically this is a software SPI implementation, so these pins can be defined anywhere on the Spark Core. For simplicity, the pins used below are the same pins used for the Hardware SPI.
