With new technologies, such as mobile communications, internet of things, and wide applications of social media, organizations generate a huge volume of data, much faster than several years ago. Big data, characterized by high volume, diversity and velocity, increasingly drives decision making and is changing the landscape of business intelligence, from governments to private organizations, from communities to individuals. Big data analytics that discover insights from evidences has a high demand for computing efficiency, knowledge discovery, problem solving, and event prediction. We dedicate a special section of Issue 4/2017 to Big Data. Prospective authors are asked to make the submissions for this section no later than the 31st of May 2017, placing "BigData - " before the paper title in OpenConf.

The paper presents proposal of the 2nd-order universal frequency filter. The presented filter operates in the current-mode and it is designed in the single-ended and fully-differential form. Signal-flow graphs (SFG) method has been used in the proposal. The proposed filter is employing multi-output current followers (MO-CFs) and digitally adjustable current amplifiers (DACAs) as active elements. The pole frequency of the filter can be controlled without disturbing its quality factor. Functionality of the proposed filter in both S-E and F-D form has been verified by PSpice simulations using available models of used active elements and also by experimental measurements. A comparison of simulation and experimental results of the S-E and F-D form of the presented filter is made. Subsequently, a comparison of experimental results of both forms of the filter is also included.
