First order linear time invariant dynamics is taken into account with two delays. A unique feature is included in this study, from the stability perspective: a term that represents the cross-talk between the two delays. This class of systems can be treated by a unique procedure, which is recently developed, known as Cluster Treatment of Characteristic Roots (CTCR). In the text we present several case studies to display the steps and the strengths of CTCR. We also include some comparison results with respect to a cornerstone study (Hale, and Huang, 1993), which gives a wonderful point of reference for this class of systems, however without the delay cross-talk effect.
