The switching signal design for global exponential stability of switched neutral systems is investigated in this paper. LMI-based delay-dependent and delay-independent criteria are proposed to guarantee the global stability via the constructed switching signal. Razumikhin-like approach is used to find the stability results. Finally, some numerical examples are illustrated to show the main results.
