(54)DEVICES AND METHODS FOR FACILITATING NON-ORTHOGONAL WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS


(57) Wireless communication devices are adapted to facilitate transmission and reception of non-orthogonal communications. In one example, wireless communication devices can encode an amount of data in accordance with information that at least some of the data will be transmitted as part of a non-orthogonal transmission. The wireless communication device may further transmit the encoded data, and the encoded data can be non-orthogonally combined as part of a non-orthogonal transmission. In another example, wireless communication devices can receive a wireless transmission including a plurality of data streams non-orthogonally combined together. The wireless communication device may decode at least one of the data streams. Other aspects, embodiments, and features are also included.
