interrupt: asynchronous event that needs attention.
H/W interrupts are caused due to h/w components like ADC, DAC or any other external event and its not due to illegal h/w access.

Software interrupts are caused in software system calls etc.
Exceptions are class of s/w interrupts.exceptions occur in cases like divide by zero/overflow/underflow
