This is a guess, for your device, but I suspect
something along these lines:
t = Ao_timer()
cb = t.after(100,thing_that_does_the_work(with_its_arguments))
Lots of assumptions here - the 100 should give you a tenth of a second...
Don't know what the arguments look like, and if you need to pass an instance
(like self) - that would depend on where you are calling it from.
Play and see :-)
