Sampling is becoming one of the most important topics for the Internet of Things (IoT). Indeed, the amount of data daily produced is so huge that the data processing cost will deeply affect the electricity generation in a near future. The big data is already a reality but a good way to mitigate this incredible data flow is to differently sample the information. This article presents - based on asynchronous analog-to-digital conversion - a way to limit the data flow and the power consumption for a host of sensors. By an adequate sampling technique, such as a level-crossing sampling scheme, a drastic activity and power reduction is feasible. An image sensor using 1-level crossing sampling is given as an illustration.
