    Hello -

    What is the best understood way to describe a complex circuit boards
    operation ?
    Analog and Digital Hardware, No Software.

    Do you describe by :
    (1) Top Level and Second Level Block Diagrams
    (2) State Diagram
    (3) Written description (ie.) "U4 goes to + saturatioin turning on Q2 ,etc."
    (4) Timing Diagram
    (5) Truth Table
    (6) Input Output levels / measurements of each major component
    (7) I/O Signal measurements / states

    The recipient of this description, for the circuit board here, would have some very basic Electricity and Electronic knowledge.

    Thanks
    :)

    I would use a block diagram followed by a timing diagram.
