GitHub code snippet library
Our GitHub code snippet library provides examples of how to control the Disc Pump Evaluation Kit independently of the TTP Ventus Pump Control App. The initial examples provided cover a range of functions, including turning the pump on and off, setting drive power, closed loop control of pressure and reading back and plotting data.

The code snippet library, which is hosted on GitHub, is intended to supports customers after their initial evaluation of our pump technology, as they move on to developing prototypes and products. We welcome suggestions for how we can improve and build upon this repository; please feel free to share your ideas, feature requests and any bugs you identify with us at


Evaluation Kit Manual and Software
The manual and application software for the Evaluation Kit are provided with the kit on a USB stick. Please contact us if you need a replacement copy.
