Kneron KL720 Arm Cortex-M4 AI SoC Delivers 1.5 TOPS at 1.2 Watts

Kleron KL720 Cortex-M4 AI Processor

We first came across Kneron AI processors last year, when we covered AAEON M.2 & mPCIe AI accelerator cards powered by Kneron KL520 dual-core Cortex-M4 processor and delivering 0.3 TOP AI acceleration performance at 0.5 Watt. The company has now introduced a more powerful processor with Kneron KL720 single Arm Cortex-M4 AI processor delivering up to 1.5 TOPS at 1.2 Watts, or 0.9 TOPS for 1 Watt. The company does not provide much other information in terms of specifications, but Kneron KL720 is said to be two to four times more power-efficient than competitors at a lower cost and is best suited for high-end IP cameras, Smart TVs, AI glasses & headsets, as well as AIoT Gateways. The processor can process 4K images, full HD videos, and 3D sensing data for facial recognition and gesture control for gaming, shopping kiosks, etc.. Besides computer vision, the chip can also handle natural […]

AAEON M.2 and mPCIe Cards for AIoT Acceleration Run Kneron KL520 AI SoC

The AAEON announcement of its AI Acceleration M.2 and mini-PCIe cards AAEON uses Kneron KL520 AI SoC dual Cortex-M4 on a series of new modules that are accelerating AI edge computing and that only need 0.5 Watt of power. The modules are M.2 and mini-PCIe AI acceleration cards, that offer a new way to come at AI acceleration. What AI Features are Enhanced The cards are meant to enhance and accelerate AI functions, like gesture detection, facial and object recognition, driver behavior in such AIoT areas as access control, automation, and security. History of the AAEON Development Previously AAEON has been offering the M.2 and mini-PCIe AI core modules for the Boxer computers that are based on the Intel Movidius Myriad 2 and Myriad X Vision Processing Units (VPU). Reporting was done on these previous releases in the articles on the UP AI core mini-PCIe card and the  AI Core […]
