This paper considers linear time-invariant control systems over fading channels in both continuous-time and discrete-time cases and addresses the design of output feedback controllers that stabilize the closed-loop system in the mean square sense. It is shown that a sufficient and necessary condition for the existence of such controllers can be obtained by solving a convex optimization problem in the form of a semidefinite program. This condition is obtained by reformulating mean square stability as asymptotical stability of a suitable matrix comprising plant, controller, and channel, and by introducing modified Hurwitz and Schur stability criteria.
