Technical Design

Does anyone have any good resources on how to write a good Technical design.  All of my groups technical designs end up looking like functional designs.  And I don't know what it really should look like myself.  What are the crucial parts?  How does it differ from a functional design?

When I think of technical design I think "this is how we are going to implement the stuff in the functional design". So some tools to making a technical design would be GUI mockups, UML diagrams, and pseudo-code for important algorithms. Not an exhaustive list, but just some examples. I don't do a lot of technical design stuff though, so I don't profess to be an expert in any way.
