picoJava

A low-cost RISC microprocessor dedicated to executing Java -based bytecodes without the need for a interpreter or JIT compiler.

picoJava directly executes the Java Virtual Machine instruction set. As a result, Java software applications are up to 3 times smaller in code size and up to 5 times faster--thus reducing memory requirements--and 20 times faster than Java interpreters running on standard CPU s.

It does not include any memory or I/O interface logic. Rather, developers can add their own logic to customize memory and an interface.
