1. A wireless communication device comprising:

  • an error-control coder that applies an error correction code to produce an encoded data stream of information bearing symbols;

    a bit interleaver to produce an interleaved data stream in which neighboring data bits of the encoded data stream are positioned to be mapped to different constellation symbols;

    a mapping unit to map the interleaved data stream to the constellation symbols, wherein the constellation symbols are selected from a constellation having a finite alphabet;

    a precoder that applies a liner transformation to the constellation symbols to produce precoded symbols, wherein the precoded symbols are complex numbers that are not restricted to the finite alphabet of the constellation;

    a symbol interleaver to process the precoded symbols to produce permuted blocks of the precoded symbols; and

    a modulator to produce an output waveform in accordance with the permuted blocks of precoded symbols for transmission through a wireless channel.
