What is the difference between technical and functional specs?

Functional specs are based on the business requirements and contain the details of end user expectations of the product functionality. Software will be developed based on the functional specs.

Technical specs contain the details of the how this is/can be achieved and the final product functionality details. In the case of hardware, technical specs will give the details and functionality of each component in the product.
