This paper considers the problem of robust passive control for uncertain discrete systems with time-varying delays. We pay attention to designing a state feedback controller which guarantees the passivity of the closed-loop system for all admissible uncertainties. In terms of a linear matrix inequality, a sufficient condition for the solvability of this problem is presented and the explicit expression of the desired state feedback controller is given.
