Paper Abstract We investigate time encoding as an alternative method to classical sampling, and address the problem of reconstructing classes of non-bandlimited signals from time-based samples. We consider a sampling mechanism based on first filtering the input, before obtaining the timing information using a time encoding machine. Within this framework, we show that sampling by timing is equivalent to a non-uniform sampling problem, where the reconstruction of the input depends on the characteristics of the filter and on its non-uniform shifts. The classes of filters we focus on are exponential and polynomial splines, and we show that their fundamental properties are locally preserved in the context of non-uniform sampling. Leveraging these properties, we then derive sufficient conditions and propose novel algorithms for perfect reconstruction of classes of non-bandlimited signals such as streams of Diracs, sequences of pulses and piecewise constant signals. Next, we extend these methods to operate with arbitrary filters, and also present simulation results on synthetic noisy data.
