- About Us
Users occasionally ask whether our scanners are compatible with USB 3.0, the answer is yes.
Originally, we designed our scanners with USB 2.0 support. USB 3.0 is backward compatible with USB 2.0, so our scanners are compatible with USB 3.0 as well.
On a more technical note, we should mention that some USB 3.0 controllers offer USB 2.0 support in emulation mode. So the compatibility in fact depends on the quality of the emulation running on a particular chipset.
On the basis of our experience and the experience of our customers, we have added several USB 3.0 chipsets to our recommended list.
Note: other Intel chipsets may also be supported
To check your chipset manufacturer and series, open the Windows Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers section:
Keep in mind that in some cases you may need to update the chipset drivers.
