7.5 What is the interrupt latency?

Interrupt latency depends on the processor and how long interrupt are disabled by the Novos environment. Novos services do not disable interrupts to ensure that interrupt latency is a function of the processor design rather than software. However, if an interrupt occurs during the Immediate Interrupt Handler of a previous ISR, a very small window where interrupts are disabled will have to be added to the normal processor-dependent latency.
