A clock interrupt is an example of a software interrupt and not a hardware interrupt. The clock tick interrupts are used to wake up the CPU from a halt state and in turn, allow the scheduler to select other work to be executed.

The definition of a software interrupt is; an interrupt that occurs when a software process terminates or when it requests a service from the operating system.
