# Microbit Module¶

The microbit module gives you access to all the hardware that is built-in into your board.

## Functions¶

microbit.panic(n)

Enter a panic mode. Requires restart. Pass in an arbitrary integer <= 255 to indicate a status:

microbit.panic(404)

microbit.reset()

Restart the board.

microbit.sleep(n)

Wait for n milliseconds. One second is 1000 milliseconds, so:

microbit.sleep(1000)


will pause the execution for one second. n can be an integer or a floating point number.

microbit.running_time()

Return the number of milliseconds since the board was switched on or restarted.

microbit.temperature()

Return the temperature of the micro:bit in degrees Celcius.
