PicoJava is a specification for microprocessors that allows Java code to be run without the need for a JIT or an interpreter. The goal of this is to help speed up the execution of Java code. Rather than containing I/O interface or memory logic, this is left to the programmer so that it can be dealt with in a customized fashion.

It was not widely implemented by Sun Microsystems when it was developed, but is licensed to a number of companies for use in their development.
