The event-triggered control problem for switched linear system is addressed in this study. The periodical sampling scheme and event-triggering condition are incorporated in the closed-loop. The feedback control updates its value only at sampling instants as long as event-triggering condition is satisfied as well. In addition, the switchings are only allowed to occur at sampling instants and meanwhile the switching condition is satisfied. Three equivalent sufficient conditions are proposed to ensure the asymptotic stability of switched systems. In particular, one condition has a promising feature of affineness in system matrices, and as a consequence, it is extended to robust sampling case and l2-gain analysis. Several examples are provided to illustrate the authors' results.
