If you cannot provide what you feel is a sufficient explanation, try to give the reader some direction. For example: This is a widget type interface compliant with the following standards IIEEEE898, AAAAH1112.x, and OOOH-42. The expert might know exactly what this is. Laymen like myself, if we really had to know, could try and find the relevent specifications.
