A multi-weighted coupled neural networks (MWCNNs) model with event-triggered communication is studied here. On the one hand, the passivity of the presented network model is studied by utilising Lyapunov stability theory and some inequality techniques, and a synchronisation criterion based on the obtained output-strict passivity condition of MWCNNs with eventtriggered communication is derived. On the other hand, some robust passivity and robust synchronisation criteria based on output-strict passivity of the proposed network with uncertain parameters are presented. At last, two numerical examples are provided to testify the effectiveness of the output-strict passivity and robust synchronisation results.
