There is no limit to perfection, so a new version of beloved GPS IMU 1.2 is being developed. Here are the main feature highlights of the new version:
- The new sensors will be used to improve the accuracy and stability of the GPS IMU.
- Improved thermal stabilization system.
- Minor redesign of case to improve useability.
- Improvement of GNSS node for better signal quality.
It is expected that the development process will be finished by the year 2023. For preorders and more information please contact us.
We are proud to announce that long waited CAN_Driver 1.11 has been released.
This is model is capable of operating 30A continuous current operating 30A continuous current (with heatsink installed) or up to 40A short-time current, and 42V of input voltage, that is twice of input parameters of the previous model and in general it is more than 3 times powerful. At the same time our engineers preserved the same form factor of the board that will allow you to upgrade your system without redesigning.
At the moment we will start to fulfill preorders, after it is done the new version will appear on retail store and product page will be updated. For more information, please contact us.
On 31st of August BaseCam Electronics team will participate Tech Runway expo at East Helsinki Aerodrome together with our trusted partner LeViteZer. The first day of event is public and every visitor is welcome to visit us. We will be sharing booth with LeViteZer and it is a perfect opportunity to discuss innovative gimbal design or any kind of specialized custom solution for your application.

Thanks to your growing interest and innovative approach we decided to develop and produce the series of auxiliary modules for our products. These modules will help you to expand the capabilities of the existing units and realize fantastic new ideas.
There is a short list of the modules that have been approved and is under development at the moment:
- The thermal stabilization unit for CAN IMU: the special extension for CAN IMU rev C that will allow to keep IMU temperature on a constant level to get rid of temperature hysteresis of zero value and improve the IMU precision.
- RS422-SPI adapter: the purpose of this module is to extend the types and models of compatible encoders for our controllers.
- SCHA63T-K03 ext module: add external IMU sensor from Murata that improves the precision and gives stabilization quality to the system.
Hannover, Germany, 17th — 21st April 2023
BaseCam Electronics team will take part in Hannover Messe this year as well. We are welcome all our partners and customers to meet is in person there to discover the upcoming product releases and to search for new cooperation possibilities.
The event will start at 17th of April and will be running till 21st of April. Meet us at Latvian national stand at Hannover Messe Hall 003 booth B04
Despite of disrupted supply chains and lack of many initially selected components our engineering team is in a final stage of development of OEM module. This will be a compact and function rich solution perfect for integration into end device.
It is expected to finish the first serial batch and start retail sales in August 2023.
Please visit product page for technical specifications.
We are delighted to announce that BaseCam Electronics Team is participating at
We would be happy to see you there in person. You can find us at stand: H2-B60, where you will be able to examine our demo installations and see all our products live. We are eager to tell you more about our products, plans and to discuss future cooperation in detail.
Also, this year we will bring with us the first and truly exclusive gimbal LVZ360, for more information, please visit the web page: lvz360.levitezer.com
We are happy to announce that our partner from Finland — LeViteZer, has almost finished his new exclusive gimbal powered by BaseCam stabilizing controller.
The unique design of the gimbal makes it very powerful and fast while maintaining its compact size and providing all the necessary parameters for weather protection. This stabilizer works with Sony ES8230 Zoom high-quality 4K camera. The gimbal, camera and lens are controlled by the standard VISCA or LVZ protocol, which fully reveals the potential of this device.
We are happy to announce that BaseCam Electronics representative is going on a trade mission to Norway to strengthen our relation to the space industry and to find new partners. This event is organized and sponsored by Innovation Norway and Latvian Investment and Development Agency.
During this event it is planned to visit Tromsø, Andøya, Bodø, Horten and Oslo. It will be our pleasure to meet you during this event. For more information, please contact us.
Hannover, Germany, 30th May — 2nd June 2022
BaseCam Electronics Team will participate the Hannover Messe — 2022. After two years of pandemic and several lockdowns all around the world finally we can meet in person with or customers and potential partners during Hannover Messe 2022 starting on 30th of May. We will be happy to meet you and discuss the future plans and visions for development of our products. Meet us at Latvian national stand at Hannover Messe Hall 004 booth A42
We are proud to announce that BaseCam SimpleBGC 32-bit Extended was used in construction of the space rover for camera stabilization purposes.
Despite it being a small part in whole construction, this is a great breakthrough for our company. Every day we are pushing our limits and mastering our technology in order to provide you best products and services for perfect image stabilization. Please feel free to share our happiness and excitement and visit the official website of Latvian Technology in space, were from now will be listed our company as well.

We developed and published our first iOS App for setting and control all SimpleBGC 32bit controllers.
The App supports the latest firmware of 2.6 version.
More details can be found on the app page
- New enhanced PID
auto-tuningalgorithm: fast and reliable
- New types of encoders are supported for YAW axis in the regular firmware: PWM and I2C
- Serial API was extended by many new commands
- Add a support of MavLink protocol for Ardupilot FC connection (beta state), that allows you to increase a precision of stabilization and control over gimbal in automated missions
- Option to backup/restore IMU calibrations to a file
- Option to automatically switch to
upside-downmode (both frame and camera) and auto-rotatecamera when frame is rotated +-180 degrees over PITCH axis.
We developed the gimbal for Sony α5100 or similar cameras. In this manual you can learn how to make it yourself
How to Make an LCD-enabled Arduino Based Remote Controller for Gimbals with the SimpleBGC 32-bit Controller
Remote controller assembled
This instruction will help you to build a simple remote controller with an LCD display for controlling a gimbal. The controller can be connected to any SimpleBGC 32 bit controller through the Serial interface. For that, you can use four-core cable, or wireless UART adapter (Bluetooth, 3DR modem, Zigbee, WiFi-UART, and so on).
To solve the issue you just need to download GUI of needed version from our site again.
The issue is caused by new SSL certificate which we started to use.
This module is intended to work as a part of the SimpleBGC camera stabilizer system, performing a motor driver function.
Unlike regular scheme, where all motors and encoders are connected to the main board and driven by the single MCU, in the modular scheme each motor is driven by its own MCU, that lets to optimize cabling: encoder is integrated into the PCB for each module, and motor's cable goes to it by the shortest way. Only 5-wire cable joins modules with the main controller.
This expansion module is supported only in the encoder-enabled version of SimpleBGC firmware.
Details and required files can be found here.
This DIY tutorial helps you build a Bluetooth motion controller for any SimpleBGC-based gimbals! This means you can simply move the controller, and the gimbal will match its orientation. This is the second project from Mark. We thank him for the work done.
