Hi,

If you want to do verification, I think calibre is better than hercules.

It is not always correct for all the technologies. Depending on the fab signoff either dracula/calibre/hercules to be used. But for most of the tsmc 40nm tech nodes they recommend calibre and for most of the 65nm nodes they recommend hercules .

For the 65nm process , you may use the assura too. The new version of assura is a excellent tool box!
