What is Frequency shift keying?

FSK refers to a communications protocol in which different values of encoded (binary) information are signaled by modulating the frequency, and the start and stop of different bits are determined by the expected timing of each shift in frequency. If there was no shift, the next digit is the same as the previous digit (0 and 0 or 1 and 1), and if it shifted, then the next digit is the opposite (1 to 0 or 0 to 1).
