How much current can digital pins source/sink on Stellaris Launchpad - Error in Energia Documentation?

Recommended Posts

In the energia tutorial it says that 

"LaunchPad pins can source (provide positive current) or sink (provide negative current) up to 40 mA (milliamps) of current to other devices/circuits. "




Is that correct for the Stellaris Launchpad?  In the documentation for the LM4F120 it gives drive strength options of 2, 4, or 8 mA, and says up to 4 pins can sink 18 mA.

Where does the 40mA come from?


Can the MSP430 source/sink that much?


I note that the Arduino documentation says the same 40mA, so wondered if this specification was accidentally copied from there.
