The Keysight N4217A analysis probe for InfiniBand captures InfiniBand traffic and, in combination with the Keysight 16700 Series logic analyzer systems, provides triggering, cross-correlation, and detailed measurements for complete InfiniBand system hardware and software debugging. The probe connects to a copper InfiniBand 4x cable, allowing the logic analyzer to trace and trigger on InfiniBand traffic from the physical 10b level, through 8b logical, and on to high-level InfiniBand protocol-based measurements. The N4217A probe also offers SFP connectors for the optional insertion of copper or optical InfiniBand 1x modules.
Capture and trigger on InfiniBand 4x or 1x traffic at 2.5 Gb/s per lane. Custom-defined protocol fields or layers are supported in the trigger macro.

LEDs provide loss-of-signal information.
Detects 8b/10b coding, disparity, framing and control symbol errors.
All packets or cells are time-stamped in the logic analyzer for time-correlation with other system buses.
4x copper connection
1x SFP connectors that allow the use of 1x copper or 1x optical SFP modules.
