Optimum noncoherent receivers for coded binary FSK

Martin Nesenbergs

Abstract: It is shown that the optimum receiver for coded binary noncoherent Fre­quency Shift Keying (FSK) depends on the Joint probability distribution of mark and space channel phases. Ideal Gaussian noise, steady signal, and perfect timing are assumed throughout. General results and specific receiver implementations are given.
