The camera is backwards compatible to USB2.0, therefore, only connecting Pins 1-10 to a USB2.0 interface is sufficient for USB2.0 communication with the camera.

Note: When the camera is connected to a USB 2.0 interface, it runs at USB 2.0 speed, and maximum frame rates are adjusted accordingly based on current imaging parameters.
