Common Functions of Interrupts?

Answer:

► Interrupt transfers control to the interrupt service routine generally, through the interrupt vector, which contains the addresses of all the service routines.
► Interrupt architecture must save the address of the interrupted instruction.
► Incoming interrupts are disabled while another interrupt is being processed to prevent a lost interrupt.
► A trap is a software-generated interrupt caused either by an error or a user request.
► An operating system is interrupt driven.
