I am in the process of trying to design an electronic device and get it patented. I have no real knowledge of electronics or optoelectronics, which is the field it pertains to. Does ay one know how specific a patent must be in terms of its design?
In other words, must it be perfect, as though its ready for production? Exact circuitry, exact components, or would general terms like "a full frame CCD" suffice?

We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.
