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.

Abstract
Quick view
Full text preview
This article proposes a cost efficient and easy to implement frequency stabilization method orientated toward communication systems operating in an extensive temperature range, as the automotive or the aerospace applications. The proposed solution uses off-the-shelf components and it is optimized for very low power consumption. The novelty of this article is represented by the introduction of the barium strontium titanate capacitor for quartz crystal oscillator active frequency stabilization. After the design was completed, the performances were evaluated and compared to the ones of the uncompensated oscillator. Experimental results confirmed the suitability of the proposed design, achieving 35 times better frequency stability within variable temperature conditions, whereas the power consumption is maintained below 6mW.
