Kneron produces AI SoC processors that offer the ideal balance of performance, power saving, and cost for hardware makers that are looking to benefit from on-device edge  AI. Powered by Kneron’s proprietary NPU that accelerates neural network models, Kneron SoCs make possible endless AI applications for smart devices.

KL720 AI SoC

Our latest chip comes in at 0.9 TOPS per Watt, giving it the highest performance to power ratio in the market. Engineered for real-world use cases where this ratio matters, we are serious when it comes to enabling edge AI everywhere and for everyone.
KL720 AI SoC
Two to four times more power-efficient than competitors at a more accessible cost, the KL720 is our next-gen edge AI SoC that is ideal for flagship devices with higher processing needs.

  • Ideal for any high-end IP Cams, Smart TVs, AI glasses and headsets, and AIoT Gateways
  • Power to process 4K images, Full HD videos, and 3D sensing for fool-proof facial recognition and to enable innovative gesture control for gaming, shopping kiosks, and more
  • Power to drive natural language processing (NLP) for translators and AI assistants
  • All the above and more can be processed at the same on the KL720

KL520 AI SoC

Our first-generation chip put us on the map with a combination of size, power savings, and performance not seen in the edge AI market. The proof is in a number of customers going to market with KL520-powered products.
KL520 AI SoC
The KL520 with its dual ARM Cortex M4 CPU can operate as a host or companion AI co-processor enabling edge AI on devices like smart locks, security cameras, drones, smart home appliances, and robotics. It is compatible with various 3D sensor technologies such as Structured Light, dual-cameras, ToF camera, and Kneron’s own exclusive 3D sensing technology.

  • This chip is perfect for smart home devices like smart door locks, smart doorbells, IP cams, robot vacuums, etc
  • Small power footprint allows some devices to run on 8 AA batteries for fifteen months


Kneron's NPU IP Series are neural network processors that have been designed for edge devices. These processors provide high computing performance with low power consumption and are small in size.

Kneron NPU IP Series can be applied to smart home, smart surveillance, mobile, and wearable devices that have a high requirement for low power and storage space.
