Cadence's simulator is NCsim (last i remember).. I prefer modelsim though just cause its easier to use..

The difference between SE and SOCE is first off they both do basically the same thing.. Place and route. Main difference is SOCE is cleaner to use and sharper looking. Both use wroute internally unless you have a license for nanoroute with SOCE.

oh woops.. i read your question wrong.. from what i understand First encounter and SOC encounter are basically the same tool but changed names as upgrades and fixes were added..

The cadence's simulation tool is called NC-verilog.
It is compatiable with verilog-xl.
As I remember, it's name is changed to IUS beyond version 5.3/5.4.

Sincerely,
Jarod
