Architectural advancements in modern processor designs increase average performance with features such as pipelines,
caches, branch prediction, and out-of-order execution. However, these features complicate worst-case execution time analysis
and lead to very conservative estimates. JOP (Java Optimized Processor) tackles this problem from the architectural
perspective - by introducing a processor architecture in which simpler and more accurate WCET analysis is more important
than average case performance.
This paper presents a Java processor designed for time-predictable execution of real-time tasks. JOP is the implementation
of the Java virtual machine in hardware. JOP is intended for applications in embedded real-time systems and the
primary implementation technology is in a field programmable gate array. This paper demonstrates that a hardware implementation
of the Java virtual machine results in a small design for resource-constrained devices.
