We give sufficient convex conditions for the existence of a distributed controller, with the same interconnection structure as the plant, when the latter is composed of heterogeneous subsystems that communicate with their neighbors over packet-dropping channels. Our linear matrix inequalities generalize previous results for the case of ideal communication links and, although conservative, are typically far more tractable for large-scale systems than recently obtained sufficient and necessary conditions.
