A noisy message-passing decoding scheme isconsidered for low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes overadditive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels. The internaldecoder noise is motivated by the quantization noise in digitalimplementations or the intrinsic noise of analog LDPC decoders.We modelled the decoder noise as AWGN on the exchangedmessages in the iterative LDPC decoder. This is shown to renderthe message densities in the noisy LDPC decoder inconsistent.We then invoke Gaussian approximation and formulate a twodimensionaldensity evolution analysis for the noisy LDPCdecoder. This allows for not only tracking the mean, but also thevariance of the message densities, and hence, quantifying thethreshold of the LDPC code. According to the results, a decodernoise of unit variance, increases the threshold for a regular (3,6) code by 1.672dB.
