BaseCam SimpleBGC 32-bit CAN_MCU

Unlike other BaseCam controllers, SimpleBGC 32-bit «CAN_MCU» controller has no onboard motor drivers and requires external drivers to build a gimbal, as shown in this diagram. It is designed primarily to work with the CAN Driver modules, though «I2C_Drv» drivers are supported, too. It supports both the CAN_IMU and regular I2C IMU sensors.

The new important function of this controller is an integrated electronic power switch that could be used as a main power switch for the gimbal*. It allows to communicate currents up to 30A continuous, providing soft startup current to charge buffer capacitors in CAN drivers, can be switched ON/OFF by the external logical input, has overcurrent and Undervoltage protection. It supports two kinds of buttons: latching switch and momentary push button.

This controller is an ideal solution to build pro-grade stabilizers able to carry heavy cameras.

Other features are common for the «Extended» and «Pro» series of controllers:

  • Current sensor to measure battery power consumption
  • 2×CAN ports, 1×I2C port
  • Joystick port having 3×analog signal inputs, mode button input, +3.3V power line
  • Built-in sound beeper
  • 3×UARTs for Serial API / Spektrum / S-bus / External IMU sensors connections
  • Up to 6s LiPo battery is supported
  • Supports extra features in the firmware that are not available in «Regular» and «Tiny» versions (see «Versions comparison chart» in the «Appendix A» of the User Manual)

* This switch should be used only together with the capacitive load — i,e, overall current consumed by all connected devices in first 500ms at startup, should not exceed 1A (roughly). See application note for detailed information.

USB Drivers for PC Connection

If controller being connected to the USB port, is not recognized as COM-port, most probably you need to install or update drivers for CP210x chip. You can download driver for your OS from the manufacturer of CP210x.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: The latest version (6.7.4) of driver for Windows may cause problems with delay in data transmission, visible as a big lag of the GUI. In this case, install version 6.7.2 of the driver, which had no such problems. Download version 6.7.2 driver.
