New sufficient linear matrix inequality conditions guaranteeing the stability of uncertain linear systems by means of dynamic output feedbacks are presented. It is shown that the search of an observer-based controller for this class of systems is fundamentally decomposed into two main problems: robust stability with a memoryless state feedback and observer design with measured uncertainties. Under the fulfilment of the developed linear matrix inequalities conditions, we show that the observer-based problem is solvable without any need for some equality constraints or iterative computational algorithms. Examples showing the potential of the results are presented.
