To be able to use Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment like System-on-a-Chip (SoC) in hard real-time environments the exact structure of the internal system has to be known. One of the main problems is the Worst Case Execution Time (WCET) calculation considering the I/O subsystem. The subsystem induces interferences caused by the transfer from and to the interfaces which compete with the application processors. In this paper the interferences caused by the I/O system are shown and ways to avoid and mitigate these are discussed.
