**Abstract**

In this paper, a numerical solution for a system of linear Fredholm integro-differential equations by means of the sinc method is considered. This approximation reduces the system of integro-differential equations to an explicit system of algebraic equations. The exponential convergence rate $O(e^{-k \sqrt{N}})$ of the method is proved. The analytical results are illustrated with numerical examples that exhibit the exponential convergence rate.
