I know that synchronous interrupts are interrupts that occur with a clock tick (after finishing an instruction) and I think that periodic if they happen in every n ticks of the clock. To get a better grasp of understanding periodic interrupts I tried without success to find a synchronous but non periodic interrupt. would appreciate your help :)

I think that if a process makes itself sleep then the interrupt when the alarm will wake him up will be such an interrupt.
