HDC2010 read sensor data Python code

Read and print HDC2010 [temperature and humidity] sensor data - pulling rate ~ 2 second.

Python with python-smbus2 and RPI.GPIO dependencies
s-Sense HDC2010 by itbrainpower.net I2C sensor breakout example - v1.0/20200218. 

Compatible with:
		s-Sense HDC2010 I2C sensor breakout [PN: SS-HDC2010#I2C, SKU: ITBP-6005], info https://itbrainpower.net/sensors/HDC2010-TEMPERATURE-HUMIDITY-I2C-sensor-breakout
		s-Sense CCS811 + HDC2010 I2C sensor breakout [PN: SS-HDC2010+CCS811#I2C, SKU: ITBP-6006], info https://itbrainpower.net/sensors/CCS811-HDC2010-CO2-TVOC-TEMPERATURE-HUMIDITY-I2C-sensor-breakout
		all RaspberryPI, using Python 2.7

HDC2010 temperature and humidity (pulling at 2 second) reading example - based on HDC2010 library written 
by Brandon Fisher and provided by TI. Thank you Brandon! Great job! Read credits bellow and inside the class.

We've just add add some variables, functions and functionalities and port all to python.

Mandatory wiring [bellow for RPi B/B+/II/3B/3B+/3A+/4/Zero/Zero W]:
        - sensor Vin            <------> RPI pin 1 [3V3 power] *
        - sensor I2C SDA        <------> RPI pin 3 [i2c-1 SDA]
        - sensor I2C SCL        <------> RPI pin 5 [i2c-1 SCL]
        - sensor GND            <------> RPI pin 9 [GND]

Wiring notes:
        *    to spare 3V3 power - read about RPI I2C sensors 5V powering

        Wrong wiring may damage your RaspberryPI or your sensor! Double check what you've done.

HDC2010 definitions are placed in hdc2010_param.py

Bellow, how to set-up i2c on RPi and install requiered python packages and other utilities.

Enable I2C channel 1
        a. sudo raspi-config
                menu F5		=> 	enable I2C
                save, exit and reboot.
        b. edit /boot/config.txt and add/enable following directives:

           save and reboot.

Check i2c is loaded:
        run: ls /dev/*i2c*
        should return: /dev/i2c-1

Add i2c-tools packages:
        sudo apt-get install -y i2c-tools

Check sensor I2C connection:
        run: i2cdetect -y 1
        you should see listed the s-Sense HDC2010 I2C address [0x40]

Install additional python packages:
        a. sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
        b. wget https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/6a/06/80a6928e5cbfd40c77c08e06ae9975c2a50109586ce66435bd8166ce6bb3/smbus2-0.3.0.tar.gz
        c. expand archive
        d. chdir smbus2-0.3.0
        e. sudo python setup.py install
