  1. Define an Interrupt

    An interrupt is a processor mechanism for stopping the program that is currently being executed so that another (often time critical) piece of code can be executed.

  2. Assume: clock = 16 MHz and a prescalar of 8. What is the timer0 count frequency?

    2 MHz

  3. What is the timer0 interrupt frequency?

    1/128 MHz = 7.8125 KHz
