  • To you guys unsure of the pressure range... This is really a common sense kind of issue. Does it make sense that the pump would generate 0" of vacuum, i.e. a PERFECT vacuum? No, of course not. It's a $15 part for hobbyists. This means that it generates up to 16" of differential pressure, i.e. at 30" of mercury atmospheric pressure, it can bring that pressure down to ~14" or up to ~46".

  • With regards to programmer, YES, you can program this (and all MSP430's) with the LaunchPad. You need the TEST, RST, GND, and VCC pins on the launchpad. That's it.

No public wish lists :(
