DMA address deals with physical addresses. It is a device which directly drives the data and address bus during data transfer. So, it is purely physical address.


16. Explain what is interrupt latency? How can you reduce it?

Interrupt latency is a time taken to return from the interrupt service routine post handling a specific interrupt.  By writing minor ISR routines, interrupt latency can be reduced.


17. What is the Semaphore?

It is a variable that is non-negative and can be shared between threads. It solves the critical selection problem and achieves synchronization in the processes.


18. What are the 2 types of Semaphore?

The 2 semaphores are Binary Semaphore and Counting Semaphore.


19. What is the full form of ISR?

ISR means Interrupt Service Routines. It is used when an interruption occurs. These procedures are stored at a memory location in the software.


20. What is a RISC architecture?

RISC architecture means Reduced instruction set computer architecture. It is a type of microprocessor architecture utilizing a small and highly optimized set of instructions to compute tasks in the least amount of time.


21. What is a reentrant function?

When a function can be interrupted during execution and can be called again safely, it is a reentrant function. The function resumes from the same point where it was left.


22. Which statement is faster ++I or i+1?

++i is faster because it uses single machine instruction, but i+1 requires loading. 


23. How can the errors in segmentation fault be avoided?

The Errors can be avoided in the following ways:

- Initializing pointer properly

- Minimizing the use of pointers

- Troubleshooting


24. Why does interrupt latency happen?

It happens because

The signal synchronization with the CPU depends on the hardware of the processor. It can take up to 3 CPU cycles for a signal to reach the processor.

After the execution of an instruction, it takes some extra CPU cycles to refill the pipeline again with the instructions. This leads to latency.


25. How can you reduce interrupt latency?

Interrupt latency can be reduced by shortening the ISR routines.


26. How can you avoid a character pointer from pointing to a different address?

Since constant protects a pointer from modifications, The pointer should be defined as a constant character pointer.


27. What is a memory leak?

When the developers create objects or use the memory to help memory and then forget to free it before completing the program, a memory leak occurs. This leads to reduced memory availability and often crashes of the application.
