Title: Using UCIS to Combine Verification Data from Multiple Tools

Abstract  : Modern verification strategies and flows tend to use a wide variety of tools producing a diverse array of data. Verification engineers and managers want to turn that data into information that allows them to track progress and make decisions including “are we ready to ship?”  Mike will report on how T&VS has used UCIS to extract data from different tools into an SQL database thus enabling better searches to generate the information required.  It also has a number of additional benefits including requirements based signoff for compliance to standards such as ISO26262, identification of test holes or surplus tests, risk based coverage prioritisation, and EDA neutral signoff flows.
