Exfo, the communications industry’s test, monitoring, and analytics experts, has acquired Ehva, an innovative Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) testing and system automation company based in Quebec City. The acquisition will accelerate Exfo’s advanced capabilities in PIC testing, enabling delivery of automated, turnkey end-to-end testing of optical components from lab applications to high-volume and high-speed manufacturing.

Ehva combines manufacturing intelligence with wafer-to-single device capabilities to deliver scalable solutions for PIC testing and manufacturing. The company has worked with world-class photonics industry leaders as well as with the Center for Optics, Photonics, and Lasers (COPL) at Laval University.

Ehva’s process software suite seamlessly integrates Exfo’s advanced swept continuous laser scanning technology into customer manufacturing settings for exceptional testing reliability and efficiency, delivering a fully-automated solution that helps avoid production bottlenecks. This seamless integration is critical, given the diversity in PIC designs used for varied applications and the lack of standards for PIC technology which poses added challenges for automated testing. With the combined end-to-end, integrated solution enabled by the acquisition of Ehva Exfo is well positioned to address exponential growth underway in the global PIC market.
