Java Optimized Processor (JOP) is a Java processor, an implementation of Java Virtual Machine (JVM) in hardware.
JOP is free hardware under the GNU General Public License, version 3.
The intention of JOP is to provide a small hardware JVM for embedded real-time systems. The main feature is the predictability of the execution time of Java bytecodes. JOP is implemented over an FPGA.
