I really wouldn't know how to start on something like that, I'm afraid, I was just recalling stuff I've learned in previous courses and stuff I remember reading.
Just this spring I finished my Electronics II course which dealt with op-amps, diodes, transistors, and transistor amplifiers. I'll be taking E III in the fall.
I also just recently finished a microprocessing systems course... if your project dealt with a 6800 or 68000 I might be able to write some assembly for that, too. :p
