In this note, a sufficient condition for the stability of sandwich control systems with impulse time windows is derived. The proposed result is simpler than ones shown by Feng et al. (Int J Mach Learn Cybern 8:2009–2015, 2017). An example based on Chua’s circuit is provided to confirm the effectiveness of the theoretical result.
