Removed speculation; we have legitimate ways of knowing this is called the IOP. That name was mentioned in the 25c3 presentation, seen in some factory logs dumped on HackMii, and seen as some of the Hollywood register names (HW_IOPINTPPC)
The [[Hollywood]] includes an ARM9 core to handle I/O and security, nicknamed the '''Starlet''' by [[fail0verflow]], but internally known as the '''IOP''' (probably Input/Output Processor).
This is a very interesting piece of hardware, as it basically does everything that makes a Wii different from a GameCube.
