Independent Research Project Need Help

  1. Oct 18, 2008 #1
    I am in a senior level scientific measurements using digital interfacing class, which is basically like a smash-up of digital circuits lab, intro to DAQ and DAC/ADC, and senior project. Now, part of this class, only 10%, is a independent "research" project. I put this in quotes because we only have half a semester to do this project.

    I don't know if anyone else has had any project like this, but I am having a really hard time finding a medium between too hard and too easy. I don't want this class to eat up all my time, but I want to do something interesting and challenging.

    The project needs to be a physical circuit that implements a theory or idea and is somewhat digital.

    My interests are:

    Bandpass Filters and Applications
    Random Signals
    Kalman Filters

    Can anyone help me to come up with a good idea of what to do please.

    How about simulating the operation of a pulse-doppler radar and using those interests of yours to get results? Or is that too complicated/specific?
