Answer / priyavadhanam
isr will be executed only when the system is interrupted
whereas the function call meant for any operations to
perform eventhough when there is no interrupt

Answer / vasanth
Simply, an ISR (interrupt service routine) can be defined
as a hardware function call. Generally, a CPU must
immediately pay attention to a hardware interrupt call. An
ISR is always given higher priority than a normal function

Answer / senthilkumar.l
In function call the main program and the funtion have some
relations but in ISR there is no need for this so there is
no need of return value in ISR.

Answer / kumar
ISR is interrupt service routine. it is seperate code
written some where in the memory. if any interrupt comes
mp checks the priority of the interrupt and service it
meanwhile the content of the progaram counter value is
written in stack after executing isr ,execution transferred
to main program.
FUNCTION CALL is seperate thing. function call is seperate
code that has to be written at the end of function . for
example, in some programs we want to perform one operation
repeatedly at that time we perform that operation by
calling that function instead of writting many times.

Answer / kent sar
Here are some of the differences:
1. Fuction call has no inputs and return args
2. ISR is triggered by external events
3. ISR may need special interrupt handling upon entry and
i.e. IRQs masking to enable or disable interupts,
4. Function call and ISR stack frame are different
5. ISR returns with an interupt return (IRET) to
restored not only call stack context but also

Answer / shams
isr : is the priority oriented. all other functions are
waiting ,to complete these routene, whenever we can call.

Answer / radhika.s
adding to d ans-11 i wud say that....an interrupt has no
relation with the current program or task being performed
by the microcontroller....it is an independent task or
program that is executed whenever the interrupt is invoked.
however, a function is a part of the program that is being
currently executed by the microcontroller, hence it is
local.it can be called only when the microcontroller is
executing the program in which it is contained..or is a

Answer / achal
this is with reference to ARM7. The function call is made
when cpu is in User mode(non-priveleged).
But an ISR is called from an Interrupt handler and cpu is
in one of the priveleged modes. Whenever an interrupt
occurs the control moves to a particular address in vector
