USB 2.0 support of USB3 cameras


Due to the high bandwidth some of the xiQ camera models (with Onsemi sensors) need to be connected to a USB 3.0 port in order to work properly.
However, lower bandwidth models support USB 2.0 connection due to USB3 Vision - so called USB2.0 backward compatibility.
These are able to stream images even when connected to a USB 2.0 port, but at lower speed.
If camera detects that USB 3.0 connection is not available - it automatically switches to USB 2.0 mode.
This is indicated by a blinking Status 2 LED on the back side of the camera.

Check xiQ and xiC models.
Note: xiC models will need additional power supply - through GPIO cable.
