F171 is an elementary conduit, the seventeenth Herschel conduit, discovered by Brice Due in August 2006 in a search using only eaters as catalysts. This was the first new Herschel conduit discovery since 1998. After 171 ticks, it produces a Herschel at (29, -17) relative to the input.

The conduit's recovery time is 227 ticks, slower than many of the original sixteen conduits because of the delayed destruction of a temporary blinker, though the circuit itself is clearly Spartan. The recovery time can be improved to 120 ticks by adding sparkers of various periods to suppress the blinker. THe variant with the clock is shown below the original one.

In the pattern shown in the infobox, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.
