Do i need mechanical and wiring diagram/explination in my PPA
« on: October 02, 2017, 08:09:59 PM »
My invention serves as a safety device by using lights to warn people. Its also a communication device. Main priority is how it looks, how its used, where it used, and why its used. Sorry to be so vague, hard to explain it without giving it away. Let me know if you need more details

In my patent i have described its function and its features in great detail. The technology to make it work would not be complicated at all. So since its not a design patent and the design of the electrical parts is not what makes it unique, is it necessary to provide an electrical diagram and detail on how it will work technically/electrically?

If i don't have the info what am i loosing out on? Also I am licencing my idea so maybe when or if I get some serious talk from companies I could invest more money and file an additional PPA that includes the wiring  information... before letting them see the PPA.
I just dont wanna spend a lot of cash flow if A) I dont have to B) I might not even get any companies that wanna sell it.
whelp, i guess im gonna go make some stuff.

If the actual electronic components are not new/different than you will probably be okay just listing these components out as a "block diagram" in a figure where each block represents a different component of the device such as a "power source" and "light element"  a "processor"  a   "memory unit",   etc.
