A Low-Complexity Coding Scheme for NOMA
This work focuses on exploiting the constructive interference among different users’ data waveforms to introduce new coding and decoding techniques, which are specifically designed for non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) systems. In this paper, a structured coding scheme is devised. In essence, the proposed technique focuses on finding a relationship between the sent users’ data waveforms and then uses this relationship in the decoding process at the receiving destination. It is worth pointing out that the proposed coding and decoding techniques exhibit better performance and reduced the complexity compared with the conventional uncoded NOMA. The complexity order evaluation shows that the proposed scheme attains a reduction in the required number of the floating point operations (FLOPs) of 5N and 6N at the second and third users, respectively, compared with that of the uncoded NOMA. Moreover, we have derived a closed-form expression for the bit-error rate (BER), which is verified using the Monte Carlo simulation. To demonstrate the practicality of the proposed system, the obtained results are compared with those of the uncoded and convolutional coding NOMA systems. Finally, the performance of the proposed system outperformed conventional systems by an average of 5 dB in the case of two users and an average of 15 dB in the case of three users in the same work environment.
