Conceptual Architecture vs Physical Architecture

 , updated on
Conceptual architecture is a structural design that contains no implementation details. For example, a diagram that shows entities and relationships between them might be used to plan the structure of user interfaces, software components or a data model.
Logical architecture gives as much detail as possible without constraining the architecture to a particular technology or environment. For example, a data model that includes key constraints but that doesn't include data types because these are often specific to a database.
