This paper provides a delay-dependent criterion for a class of singular stochastic hybrid systems with mode-dependent time-varying delay. In order to reduce conservatism, a new Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional is constructed by decomposing the delay interval into multiple subintervals. Based on the new functional, a stability criterion is derived in terms of strict linear matrix inequality (LMI), which guarantees that the considered system is regular, impulse-free, and mean-square exponentially stable. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effectiveness of proposed method.
