In this paper, a detailed performance analysis of switch-and-stay combining receivers over non identical distributed extended generalized K fading channels is presented. The analysis has been performed in both noise and interference-limited environments (the level of interference or noise is ignored, respectively). The expressions for the output signal-to-noise (SNR) and signal-to-interference (SIR) probability density function and cumulative distribution function, in a form of Fox's H functions, are presented. Based on this, analytical expressions for evaluating the moments, outage probability, average bit error rate and average channel capacity are derived. The influence of fading and shadowing phenomena, as well as the influence of unbalanced input SNR/SIR on the most important performance metrics is obtained. Presented numerical results are confirmed by Monte Carlo simulations.
