We investigate the performance of noncoherent frequency shift keying (NCFSK) with multi-branch post-detection switch and examine combining (SEC). After an appropriate statistical description of the NCFSK detector output, we derive generic formulas for the symbol/bit error probability of NCFSK under two detection schemes, one for M-ary FSK in general and another limited only for BFSK. The mathematical formalism is illustrated with a number of selected numerical examples.
