Asked in C Programming
Why is interrupt driven IO better then polling?
Polling checks constantly the status of de I/O device, wasting CPU cycles. However with Interrupt driven I/O the device sends a request to the CPU to indicate that it needs attention. So, in some cases, Interrupt driven I/O will be better than polling, because doesn't waste CPU cycles checking when the device needs attention.

Asked in Computers
What do you mean by interrupt driven input output and programmed input and output?
PIO uses the port access instructions of the CPU to receive or send data. That is also known as polling, since you have to constantly use the CPU to monitor a particular port address. Interrupt driven would use the IRQ controller to access things. The CPU still does the work, but the interrupt calls on the CPU rather than a currently running program doing so.
Asked in Car Batteries
What charges the car's battery?
The battery is constantly being charged by the alternator as long as the engine is running. The alternator is driven by a fan belt or serpentine belt and provides a consistent steady flow of direct current of around 14 or 15 volts. The amount of voltage is kept steady even at varying engine revolutions by a voltage regulator.
