Crusoe is a family of "smart" microprocessors from Transmeta that combines a relatively simple, low-powered hardware processor with software that makes the hardware processor look like an x86 Intel processor (such as a Pentium III). Because Crusoe requires only one-fourth of the usual number of transistors, the processor has a small power requirement.

Crusoe is a family of x86-compatible microprocessors from Transmeta. They use a software abstraction layer, or virtual machine, known as the Code Morphing Software (CMS), running on a VLIW hardware "core". CMS is the only application written for the native VLIW architecture, and translates the incoming x86 instruction stream into VLIW instructions.
