# Microsecond Conversion Calculator

Enter a value in microseconds below to convert to another unit of time.

## What Is a Microsecond?

A microsecond is a unit used to measure time.

The microsecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10-6. Microseconds can be abbreviated as µs; for example, 1 microsecond can be written as 1 µs.

## How Much Is a Microsecond?

One microsecond is equal to 1/1,000 of a millisecond or 1,000 nanoseconds.

## How to Convert Microseconds

To convert microseconds to another unit of time, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for microseconds in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the time measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

microseconds × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
