This paper presents sufficient conditions of asymptotic stability for discrete-time linear systems subject to actuator saturations with an output feedback law. The derived stability results are given in terms of LMIs. A new proof is presented to obtain previous conditions of asymptotic stability. A numerical example is used to illustrate this technique by using a linear optimization problem subject to LMI constraints.
