The older analyzers were never that great for serial protocol
decoding. The solution used with the HP 10342B RS-232 preprocessor
interface was to throw hardware at the problem with a Zilog SIO/1 to
turn the serial bits into parallel bytes, along with a Z80 CPU to
configure the SIO/1.


The 16700 series software has the B4601B Serial Analysis Tool Set. You
need to install a license to use that, which has been made available.
I have never really tried to do anything with the B4601B Serial
Analysis Tool Set and have no idea if it would be of any help for I2C
