The purpose of this contribution is to develop a method for construction of solutions of linear discrete systems with constant coefficients and with pure delay. Solutions are expressed with the aid of a special function called the discrete matrix delayed exponential having between every two adjoining knots the form of a polynomial. These polynomials have increasing degrees in the right direction. Such approach results in a possibility to express initial Cauchy problem in the closed form.
