In this paper, we investigate the global exponential synchronization of linearly coupled dynamical networks with time delays. The time delay considered is of the distributed type and the outer-coupling matrix is not assumed to be symmetric. Employing the Lyapunov functional and matrix inequality techniques, we propose a sufficient condition for the occurrence of global exponential synchronization. Two illustrative examples, the coupled Chua's circuits and the coupled Hindmarsh-Rose neurons, and their numerical simulation results are presented to demonstrate the theoretical analyses.
