Coverage is extremely important to the modern verification flow. Most vendors have already figured that unifying data across all verification engines leads to a more efficient and integrated environment. There are many challenges to be solved unifying and sharing data across a single vendor's tool set which are further complicated when wanting to share data across multiple vendors' tool sets. The Unified Coverage Interoperability Standard (UCIS) was created to make data sharing and exchange easier by standardizing data models and data exchange. UCIS uses Extensible Markup Language (XML) as an exchange format. This paper introduces a method of exchanging data between two-UCIS compliant coverage database systems without the need for inefficient formats like ASCII or XML.
