I am using an STM32F4 MCU and I have a doubt regarding the hardware event .

The datasheet DM00031020 at section 12.2.3 says


"The STM32F4xx are able to handle external or internal events ... "


It's clear for me the interrupt concept but it's not clear to me what is the difference between an hardware interrupt and and hardware event.

Could you clarify it with a simple example ?

Thank you in advance.
